Smokey Quartz & Amazonite or My Retirement?


Recommended Posts

So here's the skinny...

After a bit of research, and much coffee, I think I've narrowed this sample down to smokey quartz and amazonite or really low quality emerald cluster(lol, not really retirement but mebbie some bones in the pocket).

I tried some different modifications to small lights to try to illustrate the crystals.

If it is the qtz & amzte, I'm not really sure where it's origins may be (all things being lakeside from my perspective lol).

Any and all thoughts are appreciated, thanks!

Looks like polished calcite and quarts with a peppering of other things to me.  Try some warm vinegar, see if anything fizzes.

I submerged it in a glass container with vinegar to look for any effervescence and haven't seen any so far.

I did tumble it as it was in a pretty rough state when dried before I really got curious.
