    Interesting clutch hatching today: Nice greys on a few so far with no Axanthic genes involved.

    Peach moonstone from India. It is a type of feldspar (like labradorite) and some pieces have iridescence if you can get the correct angle (which is very narrow). Unfortunately my camera 'auto-corrects' the iridescence on moonstone so it just looks like camera flash...

    So close.

    GHI Mojave is a combo I've been looking at for some time, and it's one I could realistically get at some point if I wanted another BP (as in it'd be affordable ).

    Sagenitic Fluorite, aka Flower Fluorite
    I couldn't round it out completely in the tumbler, I noticed that the stone was weakening at several points and was approaching its breaking point-I wanted to keep it one piece so I dry polished it in my vibe and called it quits. Given the challenges that working with fluorite offer: I will call this one a win.

    A Lesser with some Chrysocolla with Chalcocite (Copper Ore).

    Chrysocolla has a mohs hardness that varied between 2.5 and 7.0 (so basically everything from you can scratch it casually with a fingernail up to-you can scrape it all day with a steel nail and not make a mark). The varying hardness is due to different compositions of minerals including: Azurite, Cuprite, Limonite, and Malachite.

    This particular batch of Chrysocolla from the mine in Morenci, AZ was very soft, shaped poorly, and due to the softness of the stone resisted a shiny polish.

    Here is a photo of a piece of rough material:

    You can see the powder flaking off in my hand just from holding it.

    Clever! I didn't think of that. I was just building a spiral pattern at the time.
