This is a dogtooth quartz crystal in shape, with greens and pinks, something we might find in the California/Nevada desert. (I’ve seen one.)

Spiritual because some believe that crystals can help them.
Experimental because I’ve never made a rock before!
Outside of Sandy Valley, Nevada, US, on the back road to Death Valley (Shoshone) there’s a valley by an iron mine, and it’s just filled with clear quartz dogtooth crystals. Some of the crystals are pinkish in color, and they’re about the darkest rose quartz found in the US. We always started driving before sunup so we could stop and pick up quartz in the coolness of dawn. Then on down the road, through the iron mine, around a zillion corners and suddenly! we’re in Death Valley. Turn right for Shoshone, where you can get a hot mineral bath soak and a place to sleep after you go out opal hunting. Work the hill until 10 a.m., then back to the motel or out and up the back road again to home and brunch. It’s a great 2-day trip- if you live in Jean, Goodsprings, or Sandy Valley. And your radiator’s oversized, and you pack a lot of water, and a sandwich or two, or a dozen in case nothing’s open.
