Rock Star: Petroleum Included Quartz

Look! Bubbles!

I LOVE these rocks! I'm kind of an inclusion nerd anyway, and these rocks just blow me away. 
They are so cool to look at with a loupe or microscope.  You can get lost in there!
From the description:
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.
