During the quartz growth process, interruptions occur, causing the crystal's growth to pause temporarily. When the growth resumes, a new layer of quartz starts forming over the existing crystal, creating a boundary or line within the crystal structure. The resulting phenomenon is known as a phantom inclusion. It appears as a ghostly or shadow-like shape trapped within the quartz crystal, hence the name "phantom." The phantom inclusion is typically composed of different minerals or materials than the surrounding quartz.

Collectors and enthusiasts often find quartz crystals with well-defined and pronounced phantom inclusions highly appealing due to their unique visual characteristics and the intricate history they reveal
