Interesting flower pattern hematoid inclusions in these two quartz specimens that are up for auction.

I'm not familiar with the term hematoid.

OK, kinda sounds like hemorrhoid inclusions.
I think hematite inclusions in quartz might be a preferable description.
I see the term used on a lot of mystic, metaphysical sites.

I think 'hematoid' specifically refers to quartz shot through with diffuse hematite inclusions, yielding a translucent/near-opaque red color.
These pictured inclusions are very unusual. I love them.

The unusual color and similar pattern is what caught my eye. I'm a frequent bidder in Miss Barbosa's auctions. This one I will be passing on, I'm sure these quartz pieces are going to go for several hundred dollars.
