This material is called the "Super Seven Stone" due to the fact that it is a combination of seven different minerals and/or gem varieties. At first glance, one can clearly see that this is an unusual inclusion gem. It's actually a combination of colorless Quartz, Smoky Quartz and Amethyst which hosts red to black acicular and spherical crystals included within the gem which are a combination of Lepidocrocite, Cacoxenite, Rutile and Goethite. These gems are well known in the metaphysical world (sometimes called "Melody Stone"), but you have to admit that the association of so many minerals within one gem (although not all of them are truly minerals) is rather impressive. The cut on this stone is a "Flat Pear" cut. A very cool and highly collectible inclusion gem!
