Green Aventurine Properties

What is Green Aventurine? Aventurine, sometimes called "aventurine quartz" is a variety of translucent quartz that exhibits a "glittery" appearance when it is moved under a light or when the angle of observation changes. When light penetrates the stone, some of it encounters tiny mineral crystals which reflect the light and make the stone sparkle.

In green aventurine the tiny crystals are usually a mineral known as fuchsite, a green mica that is highly reflective. The fuchsite crystals give green aventurine both its color and its glittery appearance - known as "aventurescence".
Color Green, sometimes variegated to make the stone appear slightly banded.
Clarity Translucent.
Uses This is nice gemmy aventurine that makes wonderful pendants and keychains. Makes a great vase filler or a scatter of stones in a centerpiece or display.
Weight About 75 to 110 stones per pound.
Other Information The name "aventurine" is from the glass industry. In the early 1700's glass artists in Italy were producing glass with a metallic glitter known as "aventurine glass". This glass is what inspired the use of the name "aventurine" for a gemstone. Some people always use the name "aventurine quartz" to avoid any confusion in communication.

Labradorite Properties

What is Labradorite? Labradorite is a variety of plagioclase feldspar that is widely known for its play-of-colors. When the mineral is moved under incident light it produces flashes of iridescent blue, green, yellow or orange. This optical effect is known as "labradoresence" and is caused when planes within the mineral reflect specific colors of light.

Labradoresence can be seen in some of the stones in the image above. If these stones were in front of you and you moved the light source other stones would have the proper angle of incidence to display the iridescent flash. That could also occur by moving your head or moving the stones. Most of these stones display labradoresence if viewed with the proper angle between stone, light source and observer.
Color Greenish with bright yellow, orange, red, blue and green labradorescent flashes.
Clarity Translucent to opaque.
Uses Nice pieces make attractive earrings and pendants. Used in a variety of craft projects.
Weight About 75 to 110 stones per pound.
Other Information Labradorite has perfect cleavage and because of that most tumbled stones l have a few rough spots.

Leopard Skin Properties

What is Leopard Skin? One look at Leopard Skin Jasper and you will know how it received its name. It looks like the coat of a leopard, compete with the round "rosette" markings that we commonly call "spots".

Uses Makes a nice groundcover in potted plants. Excellent pieces make interesting pendants or keychains. Put some in a wooden bowl on a table and visitors will pick them up and ask.. "What is this?"
Weight About 75 to 110 stones per pound.
Other Information

Some experts believe that Leopard Skin Jasper is derived from rhyolite, an igneous rock that forms when a lava flow or other volcanic ejecta cools quickly. The rhyolite is then altered by hot volcanic waters to form the patterned and colorful rock that we call "Leopard Skin".

Because the material is formed from rhyolite, the traditionally-used name of leopard skin "jasper" is probably not appropriate. To be a true jasper the material should be composed of chalcedony. It would then have a smooth texture, a conchoidal fracture and a hardness of seven on the Mohs hardness scale. Leopard skin generally does not exhibit these characteristics and is often grainy with some euhedral crystals visible on hand lens examination.

Mookaite Properties

What is Mookaite? Mookaite is an unusual material. It is mined in Western Australia from the Windalia Radiolarite. A "radiolarite" is sedimentary rock that is made up radiolarian tests. Radiolarians are tiny organisms that drift in the upper waters of the ocean and produce a thin shell called a "test". When the radiolarians die their tests sink to the bottom. That is how the Windalia Radiolarite was deposited. After deposition of the tests, groundwater rich in dissolved silica flowed through the sediment and precipitated solid silica in the pore spaces. Where this process completely silicified the rock is where the gem material mookaite was formed.
Color Variegated red, maroon, purple, white, cream, yellow, and brown.
Clarity Opaque.
Uses This is interesting material. Everyone who sees it wants to know more about it.
Weight About 75 to 110 stones per pound.
Other Information Mookaite also has an unusual name. The people who mine it named it after Mooka Creek, a stream that flows over the Windalia Radiolarite near Gascoyne Junction. They added "-ite" to the name of the creek - just like many other mineral and gem names have been derived. They named it mookaite. But, if you want to talk like a scientist you could call it a "silicified radiolarite".

Yellow Quartz Properties

What is Yellow Quartz?

Quartz is a mineral that is clear and colorless when pure but trace amounts of impurities in its crystal structure or a scatter of mineral inclusions within the crystal can modify its color.

This yellow quartz is a gemmy translucent material. If you look very closely with a hand lens, some pieces appear to have a thick yellow moss pulled through a transparent quartz. Without looking closely you would never notice.

Color Yellow to yellow-peach.
Clarity Translucent.
Uses Suitable for a wide variety of gem, jewelry, decor and craft projects.
Weight About 75 to 110 stones per pound.
Other Information This yellow quartz is different from the yellow transparent quartz known as "citrine". Although citrine is more widely known we think that the translucence and bright yellow color of this material rivals citrine in beauty.
Locality India.
Treatments None known.
