What is Lodalite?

Lodalite is a naturally occurring fusion of Clear Quartz with organic matter, so it’s called Inclusion Quartz or Lodalite Quartz. It refers to Quartz crystals with intermediate minerals as inclusions. They may be small, medium, or large.

The stone often has a clear or hyper-clear appearance, with inclusions of red, cream, orange, green, brown, white, yellow, golden, purple, or blue. They may come from Chlorite, Hematite, Pyrite, Rutiles, Feldspar, Iron Oxides, Kaolinite, or Sulphur.

All these minerals paint the inside of Lodalite crystals with scenic landscapes, underwater vistas, mountains, forests, smoke, and gardens. That’s also why they’re usually cut into slabs and cabochons to highlight the inclusions. So, you may hear it being called Scenic Quartz, Garden Quartz, and White Clay. 

The stone earned many alternative names like Phantom Quartz, Ghost, Dream Stone, Shaman’s Stone, and Seer Stone due to its intricate shapes, colors, and composition of inclusions.
