This piece features a large Midnight Quartzite cabochon set in a sterling silver bezel with prongs holding the stone into place. The back is cut out to show off the details and variety of colors in this stone. The silver has been oxidized with a matte finish and is strung on an 18 inch oxidized sterling silver chain.

Included quartz is a quartz crystal that contains inclusions of other minerals. These inclusions may occur when quartz forms around a smaller crystal or where different types of crystal form at the same site. Included quartz is believed to have the metaphysical properties of both quartz and the included mineral. It makes for fascinating specimens and included quartz has a unique textured beauty that will enhance any crystal collection.

Quartz grows in many environments along with many different minerals. These minerals, as well as watery solutions and gas bubbles, can be enclosed by the growing crystal.

Many minerals that would otherwise be chemically altered or dissolved when the local conditions change are protected from aggressive chemical agents when they have been embedded inside quartz crystals. Likewise, fragile minerals that are very soft, crumbly or that occur as fibers or thin needles survive inside. Other partially embedded minerals might get dissolved at a later stage and leave ghostlike hollow forms behind.
