Some fishy inclusions: Quartz

These petroleum and tar inclusions look like tropical fish... The larger green and brown inclusion (white light) are real. All the others are reflections of those off the inner side of the crystal faces. Image width is approx. 3 mm. Locality: Badhakshan, Afghanistan

Petroleum, tar and a gas bubble... internally reflected in the waterclear quartz

Looks like a school of glowfish
