    Titanium quartz is not found, it's manufactured by coating regular quartz. Also galaxy opal is just the name of a single particular opal. Dude you're so ignorant

    First one is fake. They use wood, put some rocks on then fill it with a sap like syrup. Then they’ll let it set and the polish to look like that.

    Honestly, number three looks like a form of Bismuth that hasn’t crystallized correctly, or it crystallized differently than common Bismuth crystal structures. If I sound like I know what I’m talking about, you’re kind of right.
