Been cleaning some crystals and since I was playing with my macro lens I decided to do some crystal photography, both to play with technique but also to see up close where the cleaning still needs to occur.
Most of these crystals need a lot further cleaning; with all the facets and how stained they were to begin with; this will be a long process to get all of the staining out of the cracks.
Love the parallel secondary growth and all the facets.
Back side of the above crystal. Looks as if the original growth was a smoky, then two different growth periods.
Still has plenty more iron oxide staining to clean up, but love the colors on this fluorite chunk.
There is a lot pointing at you!
A pyrite double ball. Love the shapes and facets on these great crystals!
This is uncleaned, the pyrite was starting to tarnish when I extracted it; the colors are amazing!
This is a great healed crystal!
