>>618 >Glad to see anons haven't forgotten about /rocks/ after all this time. I'm over joyed to find this. Never knew about /rocks/ back in infinity days. I was actually quite involved with others, more /32/bmw/fringe/-esque. >>512 >Greetings from /32/ Holy shit I almost had to double take on that. It's been too many years. >>542 Lybian desert glass/gold? >>536 >salt lamps They (the salt) also emitt negative ions when heated. Helps to ground the body and offset excess ions from tension/stress or electro-magnetic pollution to a low degree too. >>3 >Shungite It does certainly buffer EMFs, much better than many stones. But that's due to it's carbon fullerenes, C60, structures within the mineral. These also physically purify water as it moved through them. >>7 Another favoirte, number 83 on the periodic table, yet the 81th (9x9) stable element as well a the heaviest stable element. Also the most strongly diamagnetic material is bismuth. And furthermore a little bit about, just what it is: >Diamagnetism is a quantum mechanical effect that occurs in all materials; when it is the only contribution to the magnetism, the material is called diamagnetic. In paramagnetic and ferromagnetic substances, the weak diamagnetic force is overcome by the attractive force of magnetic dipoles in the material. The magnetic permeability of diamagnetic materials is less than the permeability of vacuum, μ0. In most materials, diamagnetism is a weak effect which can be detected only by sensitive laboratory instruments, but a superconductor acts as a strong diamagnet because it repels a magnetic field entirely from its interior. >On keeping diamagnetic materials in a magnetic field, the electron orbital motion changes in such a way that magnetic dipole moments are induced on the atoms / molecules in the direction opposite to the external magnetic field as shown in figure Diamagnetic material interaction in magnetic field. Diamagnetism was first discovered when Anton Brugmans observed in 1778 that bismuth was repelled by magnetic fields.[1] In 1845, Michael Faraday demonstrated that it was a property of matter and concluded that every material responded (in either a diamagnetic or paramagnetic way) to an applied magnetic field. On a suggestion by William Whewell, Faraday first referred to the phenomenon as diamagnetic (the prefix dia- meaning through or across), then later changed it to diamagnetism. Ok, so what? It is a conductive element (metal) that conducts not electricity, but a kind of rare and unique magnetism associated with the vaccum force and negative entropy. That is just they physics. I personally find they make they very best organites, far supperiour to copper, iron, steel, or other less heavy metals I tried. (Never tried pure gold yet...) Though I tell you from experience as a working metaphysicican these things if used with an inner understanding of your own electrical-biochemical within can be used to create electrical (& magnetic) dynamos capable of effecting form/matter as from in various organs as broadcasting centers, or you could just say magic projected from your chakras. >>259 Tiger's eye, contains much iron, so it would help sharped your boundries, ability to (biologically and mental-emotionally) keep your bounds, also helps with the stomach/upper digestive, and also nervous conditions concerning transmission through the nerves of the electrical energy (compared to the generation there of by the brain), and solar plexus chakra overall. Red tiger;s eye is very uch like this but far more focused on base vitality of the cells and furious core power, compared to more noble aspiring solar power. >>261 >piezo-electric This effect turns electrical forces unto kinetic energy and vise versa. Taking "aetheric" waves and turning them into physical waves and vise versa while they align the EM field in the direction of the crystalline structure and according the nature of the elemental makeup. >>263 >bones are piezo electric Now this thread is going places is anons follow this rabbit hole of bio-electric transmission, genesis and induction... >>493 I have lots of them. Occasionally I have to take care, but it's not really too much. The minerals live life spans far beyond humans and what we could every do to them. We don't own rocks, they have pet humans, and they will leave/hide/break/etc when the energy is not right as a method of bringing balance (from beyond our awareness as to why it was necessary). Some times chips happen, I often gift them ceremonially back to the earth to bring in that unique elemental magnetic power to that area. >>624 >I've never handled or seen Bismuth in real life If you just want the metal, for vibrational reasons, and don't care about pretty, you can get raw industrial stuff for relative dimes. And use that for your (dia)magnetic experiments and aetheric gridding. https://www.rotometals.com/bismuth/ t. crystal healer & alchemist from a lineage of mineral-heads from the far north where this was the dominate tribal medicine not plants.

>>889 This is the longest, most elaborate post I've seen on this board so far Congrats I think salt lamps are mostly made from large himalayan salt crystals Magnetism is a result of flows generated by moving electrons, In permanent magnets the flow is generated by the structure of the atoms moving in sync within the material. What gives rise to the field effect is kind of beyond the scope of this thread (also I'm not entirely sure) but something within bismuth seems to seek to oppose whichever pole of a magnetic field it comes into contact with. Here's some stuff about opals; https://blog.adafruit.com/2020/12/20/jeff-dekofsky-explains-the-science-of-opals/ https://blog.adafruit.com/2020/12/22/the-most-colorful-gemstones-on-earth/

All these are forms of Selenite or Moonstone.

I like the look of some of this brecciated jasper stuff. >>1608 I didn't even know selenite was a real thing. I just knew it as the name of the moon people from The First Men in the Moon.
>>1625 Beautiful stuff, thanks Anon. How in the world does stuff like this form anyway? :)
>>1626 I'm not really sure. Either both the chemicals that make up azurite and gypsum are in solution together and gypsum just always crystalizes first or the gypsum crystals are formed first and then at a later date copper containing liquid seeps in and begins growing on the earlier crystals. Since azurite is somewhat famous for replacing other minerals I would guess it's the second thing.
Here's a rare mineral called "blue john".
Here's the mine and as a bonus here's a early science fiction story that goes along with it.
>>1628 >that table tho Wow. That must be worth a smol fortune.
So recently I discovered that lazulite and lapis lazuli aren't the same thing.
>>1628 I personally and unironically hate that ugly table. The patternation is on the "strange" side of interesting from the get go, but then the table itself is set dressed like it's from Patty & Selma's costume jewellery closet. To top it all fluorite is quite easily tarnished and using it as a working surface is not a good plan for what to use it for. It's so bad I could help dispose of it for you anon for very low fee... I used to confuse the name blue john for that preseli blue that's a type of granite if I remember correctly. Also you know anon, there's a green fluorite under the peak district unique to that spot as well? The cost of it isn't any less prohinitive either.
>>1501 >>1640 This sort of thing
>>1640 >To top it all fluorite is quite easily tarnished and using it as a working surface is not a good plan for what to use it for. On that point, from what I understand, blue john has to be resin impregnated in order for it to hold together when worked so it's probably not actually truly exposed.
It's not in its raw state but I think this is worthy to go here. It's a very pretty jade statue although I can't help but feel serpentine would have been more thematically appropriate.
Various kinds of sand. Second pic is iron sand which is what the Japanese use to make blades from and required a special process to generate a usable steel bloom.

>>1645 Fool! Do ye not know Jade is a more mature form of Serpetine? As the serpentine is put under increased pressure it turns into Jadite and then eventually Jade proper. Pic unrelated.
