I believe these are the same piece? It looks like the latter are the 'top' part of the crystal and the first pics are of the 'bottom' where there are many more minerals embedded.Help. Can anybody help me identify these finds please?
Hi there thanks for that . What about Flourite? I had a guy earlier who thinks it’s a Flourite? I thought it was flourite just wasn’t sure .I believe these are the same piece? It looks like the latter are the 'top' part of the crystal and the first pics are of the 'bottom' where there are many more minerals embedded.
My best guess is that this is quartz in the latter pics, with lots of iron oxides and other minerals in the 'bottom' of the crystal which stayed on the 'bottom' as it grew 'upward'.
It has a similar structure to fluorite but the coloring is different, and the surface texture. Could be just where it grew, or something I'm not familiar with. The dark one on the green cloth looks like a gorgeous smoky quartz, and I bet it feels amazing! The second-to-last one in the last big batch of photos has a look of fluorite to it, the squareness of the colors. Not describing that well, but that's what I see. Looks like you're having fun!
Hi Carol, pleas see my first post — it has information on taking photos of them to make it easier for people to ID.Because this crystal is not tumbled or polished I can't seem to find an identification of it.
If you have a few left that you are still yet to ID, perhaps check in with the Rock Fella via his Facebook page. I know him personally and visit his shop here in NZ occasionally. Send him a message through is page and see if he wants to help: https://www.facebook.com/TheRockFella/ (I wish he had a website, but he doesn't!)More...
