I snapped some pics earlier today of a quartz crystal I have, that has amazing dumortierite inclusions in the crystal. I used to think nothing could beat ajoite/papagoite, in terms of blue colored inclusions, but now I am sure these dumortierite inclusions take the cake.
Like ajoite, they can get pretty darn pricey the bigger and better you get. Ajoite included quartz, is way to expensive. It's prices haven't followed along with the market trends, and were skewered by greedy dealers trying to turn a big profit.

This crystal is over 3 grams in weight
