Gemacation: Fluid Inclusions
.
Now it’s time for a truly mind-blowing GemGeekOut.
.
What you see at first may not surprise you, but keep watching. Because what you’re looking for is movement within the crystal… now that you see it, its hard not to stare, right?
.
This little bubble became trapped inside the quartz millions of years ago while it was forming.
.
Many refer to quartz crystals like this as Enhydro Quartz. But the correct name is Fluid Included Quartz.
.
Quartz can grow in many different environments, but the most common cause of formation is from hydrothermal veins of molten magma. Quartz forms from liquid elements. Once the quartz has completed crystallizing it will begin to cool down. The moisture within the liquified elements will do the same. The cooling liquids will then begin to separate creating pockets and voids within the crystal and the water will stay trapped.
.
In recent years quartz with these types of inclusions have become extremely popular. But the term enhydro is the wrong term for this type of crystal. ‘Enhydro’ means that water became trapped within the geode that formed around the moisture. It can seep out and re-enter at any time. ’Fluid Included’ is the accurate term since the liquid inside the quartz became trapped as the liquid quartz crystallized, cooled down and contracted to be for ever trapped.
