READ MORE: There are three ways inclusions

⦁ The minerals that were formed before the quartz: Quartz crystals grow and "traps" And so the original form of the mineral is preserved, these inclusions are called Protogenéticas.

⦁ The minerals and quartz grew simultaneously (these are called syngenetic inclusions). The form of the minerals listed often deviates from typical habits and ways that develop during growth unhindered.

⦁ The minerals may be included in another by exsolution (Separation of two different minerals, mineral cools.) These inclusions are called Epigenetic.
