CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

I know a few of us share a passion for crystals and jewelry as well as makeup so thought I would start a thread on this. Share your stash, finds, whatever!

My new rainbow fluorite (this pic makes it look big, though it’s about 3 inches tall).

Here's a couple of geodes and giant crystals that I saw in Tucson. These are enormous, the tents are full size displays, not just a little 10 x 10.

@prettyinpa,

These photos were worth waiting for!  Going to the Tuscon Gem Show must have been really exciting!  Thanks for sharing these pictures.

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Thank you for sharing the photos @prettyinpa! I love geodes! <3

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@prettyinpa - I've never seen geodes this big before!  They must have been awesome to see in person.  Thanks for sharing!

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

How beautiful! Can you imagine trying to transport one of those?

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@Samtian- Funny story about trying to transport one- A few years back, I actually saw someone purchase a big geode, the rock was about 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide. He was trying to get it in put the back seat of a rental car! The forklift driver was trying to maneuver the rock in without damaging the car, which wasn't happening and the owner was literally hopping up and down yelling "Don't scratch the car, it's a rental! I had to stop and watch this spectacle, it was too funny. Anyways, the car was only moderately dented and the geode did get put in the back seat. I have no idea how the owner was going to get it out when he got it home, the rock weighed several hundred pounds, no doubt.

"Yup, Someone Created Geode Hair, and It's Just as Pretty as You'd Imagine"

 

Spoiler
Geodes in beauty are like most Instagram trends: somewhat impractical but entirely mesmerizing. We've seen geode nails, lip art, and more recently body designs.

As with all great beauty trends, talented hairstylists always find a way to get in on the act. Yup, someone has created amethyst geode hair, and it's incredible. Sure, plenty of hairstylists have been inspired by the colors of geodes, but none has actually tried to incorporate the sparkle and texture of the crystals in hair . . . until now!

Color specialist Caitlin Ford is the woman behind the crystallized masterpiece. She posted her creation on Instagram, sharing that she used Socolor by Matrix and the Rebond System to keep the hair safe from damage during dyeing. She used "big, chunky, iridescent glitter in the purple to mimic the amethyst points and used a clear glitter mixed with fine silver glitter to mimic the quartz edges."

If you aren't quite ready for a literal crystal on your head, check out Caitlin's page for all kinds of other hair color inspiration.

*** the IG page shows a brief clip on how the look was achieved ***

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

@ZombieMetroAnt - Wow!  This is really pretty!  I wonder how it feels in the hair, meaning does it feel weighty, like a mass, that you just want to rip off your head because it's sooo annoying?  Smiley Very Happy

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Wow! That’s gorgeous!! Does it stay put pretty well?

Also, off subject, but I really love your lip color— so pretty!! @ZombieMetroAnt 🙌

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Oh @Shosh85, you are so cute.  I'm not nearly as talented as this...I'm a bun/ponytail kinda gal Smiley Wink  This was an article I saw on PopSugar but had to share Heart 

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Oh, ooops! I don’t know about cute, but I am pretty slow and easily confused, haha!  I don’t know what over half of the people look like on here, so I assumed, haha! 

But still, whoever she is, her hair is magical and lips are so pretty!! Haha! @ZombieMetroAnt. 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️😂

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

No, not slow at all, silly @Shosh85 Heart  definitely cute!

 

I should of prefaced the post with the heading of the article.  Girl, if you see the original IG post, you can see that's it's definitely a one-time-use only type of style.  I dunno if I'd have the patience to sit through all this then have to wash it off Smiley Sad 

Re: CRYSTALS, GEMS AND JEWELRY

Well aren’t you sweet!-  I don’t feel like a such a dum-dum now, haha! 😉😘

 

I’m ok with a little glitter and color, but this might be a tad too much for me! I wonder if it feels heavy? lol! It’s definitely cool to look at!! @ZombieMetroAnt 🤗
