Help Crystal Identification — Post your Photo Here

    Pinned to the top of the Crystals & Frequency Support Systems board, here is a dedicated thread to help those out there who are trying to identify a crystal.

    It’s important to include a photo of the crystal in natural light, so outside is best. When inside you have shadows that cause color changes, but also what surrounds the crystal can influence the way it looks.

    I tend to sometimes apply filters and increase the contrast and/or brightness of photos, but make sure you don’t for this purpose, so have an unedited photo, otherwise it makes it harder to identify.

    It can also help to have a plain background behind the crystal with your photo. Also, if the crystal is a lighter color, use a darker background, and if it’s a darker colored crystal, use a lighter background.

    Hello! Can anyone help me identify these 4 (rather small) crystals? A friend gave them to me a while ago simply because of the colours, and I'd love to know exactly what they are :)

    The orange one is likely a carnelin agate.

    The purple I can't identify. It may be dyed. Based on the pattern inside, it can't be an amethyst.

    Green is likely a green agate. But its' a bit unusual. With the photos it's hard to tell, slight chance it may also be dyed.

    Blue one could be a blue onyx. Otherwise it may also be dyed, but again, hard to tell from the photos.

    I suggest you look at the names I included above, then do a google image search and compare the results to the crystals as you can then have a better look at them from turning them around to properly compare them to the photo. In your photos I don't think you were in the sunlight so the colors are a bit different to seeing them in person.

    What do you think CrystalSong?

    I think the orange one maybe carnelian, the others look like dyed agate to me. The colors aren't natural, which I think you said as well Laron.

    Agate is a cool stone with different 'personalities' depending on the type of agate.

    Another stone that's often dyed is howlite which is a neat stone too.
    It's easy use for dying as it's natural colour is primarily white, often with grey stripes.

    Thanks you two. I have very little experience with dyed crystals, but I sure did learn a lot yesterday when looking into this.
