The purple mineral (amethyst?)has nice gas inclusions. And do I see little red spots? That might be hematite.

I have never heard of happy camp jade. Which one in the picture is it?

And which one is the aquamarine?

That is an amazing collection you have... I don't have Vesuvianite in my collection...yet :)

I gave a link to how inclusions are formed on the other question you stated.

Hope it helps.

Sure would like to see a close up of that Aquamarine. :)
