Hey Folks,

I saw this laboratory growth crystal on eBay and thought you'd all appreciate the color and geometry of this complex jewel. I'm 85 bucks short of scooping it up... but it is quite lovely and most fascinating. Thumbs up

wow.
flabbergasted at this thread.
Some amazing stones, minerals, and crystals here.

If your religion, faith, devotion, or self proclaimed spirituality is not directly leading to an increase in kindness, empathy, compassion and tolerance for others then you have been misled.

i had seen bismuth before, but didn't realize until now how hyper-spacial it seems. i am half expecting it to morph into itself and turn inside out any second.

nice find RS

I have a piece of that here somewhere..well minxx does anyway.

I should really get all my boxes of stones and crystals out and lay them all out for a photo..the pics I had on the first page were just a fraction of the stones I have.

I have heard similar things. I would be interested to try. Is there a certain crystal that induces clarity and understanding and tranquility? I wouldn't mind trying that one out! Wink Pleased

Wow....just wow!! Some amazing collections.

In the last couple years I have started a small collection.
I feel compelled by to seek them out. I love when I find a special piece at a place where Gem and crystals normally wouldn't be. I have added maybe 5 to my collection in the last couple months.

Most of mine are on the smaller end so not sure if its worthy of pictures to show them off. Everyday I carry a piece of Selenite in my pocket, and usually another depending what I am doing that day.

I was inspired by I am and went out and found and piece of Pietersite. Have to say.. I like it very much.

I hope to grow my collection over the years, I am quite envious of these large collection, I know what joy they bring
Babies indeed.Big grin

DeDao I recommend getting a piece of Selenite for the characteristics you described. A quick Google search will explain the properties.

very inspiring thread everyone- thanks Smile

i've been hunting minerals and mainly crystals for many years
here are a few pictures i have to share
-gold i found w/ my dad in idaho
-digging into the old mine near the town of washington
-morganite on cleavelandite w/ very unique quartz crystals
-view from the top of dogtooth peak on a hike in crystal digging trip last summer

i dont have many minerals that i didn't dig myself.

great thread and beautiful pictures... I love crystals!

im not sure if this has been mentioned before but does anybody here have any crystal pipes for smoking spice in? its something ive been thinking about for years since a friend broke my glass pipe of 9 years a couple years back and i still havent found a worthy replacement.. my initial crazy idea was to create a moldavite pipe, until i realised a suitably sized piece would set me back several thousand! now im thinking learn to carve my own quartz crystal and amethyst etc into beautiful pipes, seeing as how crystals are known to amplify energy signals you could have a crystal pipe made from your prefered crystal for energetic healing think of this combined with your own custom changa blend aswell!

I used some beautiful quartz crystals and charged them in ayahuasca ceremonys in peru, then used the same crystals in a kind of shrine for spice crystals. i believe this had a positive intentional effect brought about through the synergising of the different crystal formations!

Wow much respect, it is incredibly admirable that you dig for your own minerals... I hope that one day Ill be able to do the same, thank you for sharing your inspiring and beautiful photographs.

Word, brother. Malachite is fascinating and a very healing mineral to spend one's experience with. A copper ore mineral, like it's closely related, metamorphic twin azurite. Malachite is also copper-cousin to chrysocolla, cuprite and turquoise. They can and do grow together, which is a rush to behold.

Technically, it is a mineral and not a rock, as rocks are groups of co-existing minerals, en masse. Lapis Lazuli is a rock, as is granite. But I often use the same word when I talk affectionately about gemstones and mineral specimens. Earthen jewels totally ROCK!!! Thumbs up

This mineral often grows in a botryoidal crystallization mode, although they can also form blades and distinct, angular crystals. Still they frequently crystallize in multiples of raised spheres, displaying myriad sizes of spheroids.

Picture a plop of soap bubbles, if you will. Thousands upon thousands of spheres coexisting as one mass, exhibiting parallel geometry. But not empty like gas bubbles... more like onions, with concentric rings.

In many mineral forms, we see such circular symmetry, at it's very finest. That is botryoidalism in action. The vivid bulls-eyes wildly evident on this cluster are due to the effect of a lapidary application. The multiple "bubbles" have been expertly hollow-ground, keenly sanded and highly-polished into a bonafide gemstone.

The specimen in your pic once resembled a dull, mat-finish mass of green suds. Bubbular expansion, in it's crystallized dimension. The concave surfaces of where the spheres once protruded, where ground down to reveal the concentric rings of it's incremental growth cycle. Thus, revealing the mind-bending hidden beauty within the structure of it's mesmerizing external form (much like humanoids).

This specimen is undoubtedly from Africa. Either Kenya or Zaire, where tons and tons of malachite are mined annually. In fact, to legally export many African mineral resources, especially in places like Kenya, they must be worked into some kind of utilitarian or sculptural form to be exported to other countries. In other words, to qualify for legal export status, they must be crafted within the host nation.

Why so? Because this brings revenue to African artisans, who while they make absurdly low wages for such difficult and dangerous for of employment , this allows for the country to benefit from the exportation, through taxation and the export fees. I've no problem with this, except for the health risks involved (yes, malachite dust is very toxic to humans). Reality can sometimes stink up the place but please, but don't let me kill the buzz. Thumbs down

And as bizarre as it may sound, Rising Spirit is actually a "scientist" of sorts. Well, insofar as being a trained gemologist, jeweler, lapidary and life-long rock-hound... which as disciplined realms of study go, are as bound by succinct quantification, procedure and logic, as any other field of contemporary science. Despite not having a doctorate in crystallography, I do have a some small understanding of these mineral life forms. Since I could scarcely wobble upright, I have been chasing the magikal, shiny things. Big grin

As a side note... Edger Cayce, "the sleeping prophet", was quite fond of malachite. He referred to it as Lapis Liguris. A book of his impressions,Gems and Stones, is an interesting take on all things related to meditation and healing/attunement to special rocks. I have my own ideas... but I like Edger's unique spin. I take much of it with a grain of salt (also a crystalline manifestation).

But more than anything else, I see Sacred energy, color and light... when I encounter our mineral kingdom family members. They are alive and the embodiment of a greater intelligence, even as we are. Cool

This is a great example of a natural state of botryoidal, crystalline geometry. This azurite cluster is untouched by the lapidary's manipulative intentions. No, it's not in my keeping. Sure is a pretty gemstone. Thumbs up
