I got quite a few rocks and crystals when my mother brought them home from her classroom and I need help identifying them. Some I think might be amethyst or fluorite. One of the green ones I think could be calcite, but I'm not sure on any of them.
Funny, I just got some fluorite wands myself and was looking at them just prior to seeing this posting so I have the patterns 'in my mind's eye' so to speak. From that, for what it's worth, I see some patterns in your beautiful (stunning!) crystals which look very fluorite-like, for example, the top of the first pic and most of the third.Hi everyone! Can anyone help me identify these? They were sold to me as purple Fluorite, and I tried searching and it seems that opalized Fluorite is opaque, but I am not quite sure if these really are Fluorite. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
I believe these are all quartzite. The colors are due to the presence of various minerals. Red indicates iron oxide. They look tumbled or rounded from water or waves on a lakeshore. Quartz is clear, whereas quartzsite is milky in appearance.Can you help me identify these two groups? To the left is a light purple blue tone and to the right is a peach/pink group. Thank you for any help! ♡
My sons found this whilst playing out and they are trying to work out if it’s glass or a crystal. We’ve tried looking on the internet but struggling to find anything similar so we were hoping someone here may be able to help us.
I don't have much experience with fake crystals though I have heard they are around.Hi,
I was wondering if anyone had experience with fake crystals.
I have received a piece of "Rose Quartz" which I believe to be glass.
Due to the following:
- Lack of incisions and impurities
- The "crystal" stays rather warm as opposed to my other pieces of Quartz (But it's a big chunk)
- There seems to be some bubble-like things trapped inside
(Apologies for the poor image quality)
Could anyone maybe shed some light on this?
That first one initially reminded me a lot of an 'apache gem silica' which I just got with a bunch of stones in it: chrysocolla, goethite, shattukite + cuprite; so lots of colors. When I noticed how shiny those colors are i realized that it is more likely to be ammolite; a very beautiful stone IMO.
