quartzwithhematite

Today has felt pretty productive. I've been puttering away at some new creations -- mostly necklace designs, but there are a number of pairs of earrings as well. I was actively in the process of pairing some of these hematite-included quartz points for potential earrings and had to pause for a photo. They just look so beautiful to me. I can't wait to share some of my newer creations with all of you as they continue to be finished. Beyond that, I'm so incredibly inspired by the beautiful weather and all of the plants coming to life here. We're planning out our garden at the moment; Ryan and I used to grow fruit and veggies each year, but we stopped when we moved to this property and haven't started again. This year, we intend to allocate an area near the back of the yard for additional planting (beyond our current flower gardens). We're also likely to use some of the area on our relatively spacious back deck. I hope to share some of that as the projects unfold. What projects are you working on at the moment? ☺️💕 #quartz #quartzlover #workinprogress #inspiring #hematoidquartz #quartzwithhematite #quartzwithinclusions #etsymadeincanada #etsycanada #etsyseller #etsycrystals #earringsinprogress #springtime #productivity #thingsthatmakemehappy #gardening #gardenplanning #creativity #creativeprocess #maritimer

Previously in my collection - a Quartz xls cluster with bladed Hematite xls - from Jinlong hill, Longchuan Co., Heyuan Prefecture, Guangdong Province, China.  This was actually the first Chinese mineral specimen I acquired years ago, and started me on my fascination of the minerals from Jinlong hill. Distinctive material, often found with hematite blades with the quartz displaying a variety of colours and levels of transparency.  There are some obvious missing crystals, but despite that, it remains an aesthetic specimen in reasonable condition. The uncontacted quartz xls are showing sharp terminations and a mixture of single and double termination form.  The striking orange colour of the quartz is caused by iron oxide. I have not been able to 'relegate' this specimen to the rock garden, despite the fact I have another cluster from Jinlong hill that is completely contact-free, this particular specimen just has a certain appeal to me and I love the large double-terminated quartz xls on the rear of the specimen. Specimen measures 8.2cm x 10.6cm x 8.1cm. #quartzcrystalcluster #quartzcluster #quartzwithhematite #mineralcombo #jinlonghill #jinlonghillquartz #mineralspecimen💎⭐ #mineralcollection #mineralcollector #chineseminerals #chinesemineralspecimens #chinesequartz

Quartz cluster I dug from a pegmatite a couple months ago in North California. Pretty sure the red inclusions are hematite . One of the coolest crystals I've found so far #quartzcluster #rockhounding #rockhoundingcalifornia #californiacrystal #clearquartz #quartzwithhematite #crystaldigging #interestingquartz
