You can add your photos here using the photo upload option. Please only do one at a time though, and provide some additional details such as location, environment, and any other properties to accompany the photo.

Pictures 1,3,5,6, and 7 are all quartz crystals. #2 can be the uncrystallized underside of a quartz crystal, or chalcedony or opal. Not sure about #4.

Itend to agree Hershel. Maybe some data about where you found them will help us identify 2 and 4.
