I've been a rock hound since I was a kid. Had no idea I possessed so many crystals. Over the years my dad has gifted me many polished tiger's eye
pieces and I've found small pieces of turquoise.
I mostly hunt arrowheads and didn't really think about flint as a form of crystal, it's a variety of quartz.
I have a wide variety of flint pieces some worked some not. One bird point is so thin it's a mere flake almost transparent. It's a soft lilac color
with darker purple specks. It's so small I really don't know how I found it.
Now I"m wondering what exactly I have in my collection? I've got one flint point that is a pure white, looks painted, with a peach colored streak
running through it. I have several butterscotch/caramel colored pieces that are so smooth and yummy looking.
I didn't realize my pyrite, fools gold, is also a form of crystal.
I know when I find them I love handling them as I walk along. It might sound strange but most seem to jump out at me as if it wants to be found.
I often gift my points so it would be nice to know if there are other attributes associated with them. It could make for a more special gift. Never
would've thought about them in that way without this thread. I only saw value in the worked piece, not so much the content. Seems I have some research
to do thanks for the info.
