Hey everybody!

So I decided I'd finally unveil some pictures of my crystal collection, which is several pounds heavy in a handpainted Avalonian mixed with Mesopotamian Goddess style imagery-looking box. Atop it sit my two Avalonian wands, and two crystal balls. The larger crystal ball is actually sitting in an altar bowl. This has become my miniature altar at the moment as my dog was continually knocking over my big set up, so downsizing ended up being the middle path. Enjoy the pics... I just took them!

Nice collection, LotT. Love the wands!

Can I ask what the blue tumble, sitting on top, at the left is?

Doh! This is when my color blindness fails me... lol

It's the deeply colored elongated (almost rectangle) on the extreme left of One. :D

Along the side wall, there's a bluish one right above the Unakite in the bottom corner. That one is an Apatite Cabochon sitting at a strange angle. If you mean the raw piece right above that but directly below the pink/red one in the corner, you're looking at an Indigo Crackle Quartz.

"Extreme Left of One" Yep... It's Crackle Quartz in Indigo.

This is Crackle Quartz... It's Quartz that's boiled till it cracks and then dyed. Technically they are Devic Temples, although ideally a Devic Temple should have that crackled appearance from fire and ice, not from a boiling machine, lol. This pic is not my collection - I wish! But you can better see what you're looking at. None of mine are tumbled as they can be faked with glass that way. Mine are all untumbled natural pieces with terminations and such - to prove that they are truly composed from quartz. I have a whole chakra color set plus some extras...

Aww, thanks! And yeah BigAl, "crackle quartz" is what you want to search if you're ever looking to buy any of those pieces. I'll lay out my whole collection here soon. It's better to get them untumbled though - people have been faking these with glass. So if you get them in natural terminations and such, you know for sure you have quartz and not glass ;)
