from those pictures it seems all the inclusions are placed on the same "plane", can you confirm this?

This is why it's very important to sneeze away from the immersion cell...

Hello dear,
I am new here, so I am just browsing and saw this here, and figured I'd toss my two sense in. =)
Although I'm pretty sure no one will see this response since this thread is so old, I'm going to write it anyway. LOL
I believe what you have here, is Covellite in quartz, which can happen in clear quartz, smokey, and amethyst. =)
I myself have a piece, of the smokey variety. And I love it. =)
I hope this helped!


-Guinevere
I have attached photos of mine and its inclusions and pink/red chatoyancy below. ♥
As I can see a little bit of the pink/red shimmer within yours as well. =)

agreed. hematite.
i'm sure if it wasn't immersed, they'd be red.
