agatized cells

anonymous asked:

Do you have any abilities like Pyrokinesis/Firebending?Seems like something a Gem like you would have 😅

I wouldn’t be a fire agate without pyrokinesis! This is what my kind specializes in.

Controlling fire is easy for us! 

We also have great heat generation and resistance. 

Recently, I’ve discovered some additional abilities.

 I can control metal if I heat it enough. 

And I can manipulate the brightness of artificial light by applying heat. But I can’t turn it on or off at will. I’m still practicing these new skills. 

Using my powers long enough make these new bumps glow. It’s annoying, but I’ve gotten used to them. 

Agatised dinosaur bone

A core of amethyst (purple quartz coloured by iron) and an outer layer of white agate have filled in the marrow cavity in the centre of a thin slice of backlit dinosaur bone from the Smithsonian’s National gem Collection. Further white agate has replaced the cellular structure of the bone around the cavity, showing us its internal workings.
