This is an extraordinarily rare herkimer-like doubly-terminated enhydro quartz crystal with three phase inclusions including petroleum, water, air, and anthraxolite. The petroleum is the yellow liquid that glows blue in black light. The anthraxolite is the black solid material floating in the petroleum or water.
