Not sure of the name
« on: June 01, 2016, 02:01:07 PM »

My dad gave me a small slab of what he called Sergeant's Prizm or Sergeant's Quartz. I attempted to look this up and got no where. I heard someone mention a Chevron Prizm before, but I have not yet saw one. The triangle runs all the way through the entire prizm, from end to end. Anyone ever see anything like it before?

Looks like a phantom crystal cut across the horizontal axis.

That would make sense. Have you ever heard of either name before? Or something else this might be called? Just curious. Either way, I think it's cool. Pink Floyd comes to mind. :glasses9:

that would make a great alcoholics anonymous pendant.

Circle with point up triangle centered.

you make a pendant with that, you know someone with a few years under their belt that earned your respect back, thats the person that should wear your beautiful creation.

Hi Style,

If you google chevron amethyst there are some very similar looking in the image results.
Hope this helps!

I could see a pale Chevron Amethyst if it didn't have the Green zone and on Amethyst I would question only 3 sides.  My personal guess would be zoned Flourite.  Flourite's colors tend to be more a match to the image, Green, Purple and Clear.  The corner cut of a Flourite cube would give this pattern.  Can the material be scratched with a knife blade?  Hardness Flourite 4, pocket knife 5, Amethyst 7

That's what I was thinking. Try putting it under a long wave UV light.

Yep, this is Fluorite. I have many of these that came in an estate I picked up several years ago. I thought the same thing about using them somehow for AA pendants. Very cool!

I concur, about it being Flourite.
I also purchased something very similar, but in darker pinks and dark maroons bands back in 2001 at a show.
