These are my recently acquired hydrothermally grown synthetic quartz crystals. Two specimens are fairly typical of the popular "Sea Urchin" or "Hedgehog" style crystal clusters, while one of them was a broken Brazilian Quartz cluster, that had been partially regrown in the autoclave.


JKB970, Hydothermally Grown Synthetic Silicon Dioxide, R&D XTALS LLC, Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, United States.JPG
 Mineral: Hydrothermally Grown Synthetic Silicon Dioxide
 Description:
R&D XTALS LLC, Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, United States
9.3 cm x 6.2 cm x 8.2 cm
This specimen originally was a mass of broken natural quartz crystals from Brazil. After some time in the autoclave the terminations have regrown. New growths show the cross hatch growth patterns, typical of laboratory grown hydrothermal quartz. Note the “urchin” cluster added to the specimen in the lower left corner of the specimen.

This specimen shows three “urchin” or “hedgehog” style clusters grown on earlier seeded quartz crystals. These thin crystals are very sharp (Literally…)

That is pretty neat to see Jamison - thank you so much for sharing! Is it possible to add arrows to the regrowth crystals to show where the regrowth starts and to tell how long it took to grow?
Best wishes,
Elise

Elise,

To answer your first question, I can't really give you an adequate answer because I don't know it! Vlad didn't take "before" pictures and I don't know what the cluster looked like prior to it being placed in the autoclave.

In March 2015, he showed us some broken clusters that he brought from a dealer at our March meeting and then showed us the finished products at our November meeting. I think the run time total was approximately 6 - 7 months for the full regrowth.

This is a large cabinet specimen of (formerly) amethyst from the J.B. Ivey Property (Farm), Warrenton, Warren County, Georgia, United States and then altered by a hydrothermal silicon dioxide solution. The “rehealing” was done by Vlad Klipov of Cleveland, Ohio.

This specimen has been altered from its original state and then was placed in a steel autoclave and allowed to “reheal”. The total time of “rehealing” took approximately six to seven months.

The original quartz was a “top” of a scepter, with the “rod” portion broken off, probably in situ. My objective (foolish hope) for this experiment was that the “rod” portion would regrow and the “top” of the scepter would only regrow slightly.

What happened instead was that the “top” continued to grow along the c-axis, and enveloped what remained of the “rod”. What you have now is “almost” a double terminated quartz, similar to a “Herkimer Diamond”. Like the “Guerrero” experiment before it, the color has been greatly reduced, but the overall luster has improved.

The photos below shows the specimen before and after the regrowth experiment. Enjoy!

In 2016-2017, Vlad has expanded some of his experiments with his hydrothermal solution quartzes. I have acquired several specimens that he has regrown and will share them here on the FMF site.


JKB1128, Hydrothermal Solution Quartz.jpg
 Mineral: Hydrothermally Grown Solution Quartz
 Dimensions: 6.4 cm x 4.4 cm x .5 cm
 Description:
R&D XTALS LLC, Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, United States

Flattened hydrothermally grown solution quartz crystal. Vlad attempted to duplicate a quartz that resembled a gwindel quartz. There is no degree of twist on the crystal.

 Mineral: Hydrothermally Grown Solution Quartz

 Description:

A cluster of small hydrothermally grown solution quartz needles. I’ve nicknamed this “The Haystack”.

 Mineral: Hydrothermally Grown Solution Quartz
 Dimensions: 5 cm x 3.5 cm x 5 cm
 Description:
R&D XTALS LLC, Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, United States

Attractive irradiated specimen of hydrothermally grown solution quartz. Note the smoky color of the quartz is fairly uniform, unlike the irradiated smoky quartzes that were produced from the Arkansas deposits.

JKB1109, Hydrothermal Solution Quartz (Sand Inclusions).jpg
 Mineral: Hydrothermally Grown Solution Quartz
 Dimensions: 2.2 cm x 5 cm x 2.1 cm
 Description:
R&D XTALS LLC, Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, United States

Natural seed crystal that had inclusions of sand particles. Vlad mentioned to me at a meeting that somebody tested the inclusions to find that they were fluorescent under a shortwave ultraviolet light.

 Description:
Pecos River Valley, Chaves Co., New Mexico, USA
6.3 cm x 3.3 cm x 3.5 cm
R&D XTALS LLC, Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, United States

Vlad did an experiment on several “Pecos Diamond” quartzes to measure crystal growth. Pecos Diamonds have inclusions of hematite giving them their red color. Unlike the amethyst crystals that had been regrown, these crystals retained their color and inclusions. New growth on the crystals are clear.
