Original pic obviously mislabeled as "titan" instead of "titanium." As said, it is coagulated/crystallized pure metal from the refining process, not a naturally occurring mineral.

In this pic related, the cube is 1 cm per edge for scale.

Bismuth is actually pretty cheap. I got some from the Boston Science Museum gift shop about 20 years ago when I was a kid.

You can make the hopper like crystals on a stove and the metal itself isnt expensive indeed. Getting the colors right, like this rainbow is pretty tricky.

Sorry, I misunderstood you. You are right with the turquoise. There is also chrysocolla and malachite(blues and greens). The purple is actually fluorite, not amethyst.

Chalcopyrite?

No problem, let me know if I should keep taking pictures. I'm not sure of the quality of pictures though, I'm just using my new phone.
>>
>>3119442
It all just depends on what you want to find and how far you want to travel...
>>
>>3119442

>>3119558
I see, nothing particular. Is there a site or tool that you use to find hotspots that are accesible? Not like a mineshaft with a guide or anything. I remember a wall of rocks and sand about 1 meter high. People would come there to dig through it and look for fossils. Got no picture of my findings
