RE: Mineral Mondays 56 - Etching Benitoite Crystals

in STEMGeekslast month

Oh man, I would have never thought that was a crystal. I probably would have thought the pink stuff was gum stuck to a rock.

Sort:  

The pink stuff is birthday candle wax lol. The crazy thing about this stuff is often times you'll see just a tiny bit of blue sticking out, then open it up and it's filled with crystals. Keep in mind, this stuff is incredibly rare and valuable, but you never know until you work on it. Thanks!
