Bright red Hematite inclusions in a colourless Quartz gemstone from Madagascar.

The dense inclusion scene in this gem consists of jagged shards of reflective Hematite, some of which display an iridescent shimmer as the stone is rotated.

This inclusion variety is commonly called "Lepidocrocite" (or sometimes "Lepidocrosite") among gem enthusiasts but this in a misnomer.
