Amphibole quartz or angel phantom quartz is a rare variety of quartz with inclusions of various minerals that include Actinolite, Hornblende, Riebeckite, Richterite and Tremolite, either on their own or in combination. 

Amphibole, from the Greek amphibolos, meaning “ambiguous,” was named by the famous French crystallographer and mineralogist René-Just Haüy (1801) in allusion to the great variety of composition and appearance shown by this mineral group.
