A real good time was had by all creating this collection of fantasy crystal photographs - fantasy crystals in many different colors and shapes. My personal favourites are the two crystal altar images and the crystal sacrifice :-)
This stone is sometimes called the "Pink Tutu" because of its rose quartz frill. The smoky quartz formed first, then the rose quartz. Geologists suspect the pink tint comes from traces of aluminum and phosphorus.
Opal Butte crystal with contra luz color with spectacular visual effect. It looks like an underwater view of the ocean floor as light shines through it. There's a surreal quality about the gemstone that looks like a pocket-sized aquarium.
