I was just looking around and I found this for sale on eBay
It looks a pretty cool inclusion(s):

(1 day and 6 hours left at this time)
I thought to share this for the inclusions afecionado. It's just 2 bucks (starting price) and free shipping... so you might be able to add a potentially cool inclusion to your collection for a tiny sum of $.
I won't bid, even if I'm tempted. But I have too many rocks around already. :lol:

That's nice, Maialetto, but the description clearly states that the stone is IF flawless, so clearly these "inclusions" you mention could not exist.

Doesn't IF mean "Inclusion Featured" stone in these cases? :?:

In the past I bought a coupla garnets with nice inclusions from this vendor (I mean: on purpose for the inclusions). And a SI garnet that was clean as well. :D It's a lottery...

Okay, I couldn't resist :lol: . I like cool inclusions and I don't have a blue zircon in rough form, so what the heck.

Ohhh! What nice inclusions! I love gemstones with inclusions!!! :D I think all gemologists love inclusions. When I observe a stone with the microscope I feel as if I traveled to its formation and history.
