Wow I got these done early! The third of @gemsona-hqs monthly gem challenge is Heinrichite. I was excited for this one because I wanted to create a design with square shapes. There wasn’t much on this mineral (besides it being radioactive and becomes unstable at room temperature), but thankfully I was able to come up with a theme for this character.
It seems I had tetris on the brain. Because of how it looked, I knew a lot of people would jump at basing their designs on technology so I tried avoiding that. The only difficulty I had with this character was choosing colors.
Anyhow, Heinrichites are tower guards or sentries. This particular one guards an old and forgotten gem facility run by a very bossy moss agate. Heinrichite hates his job: not because no one has visited the facility in thousands of years. It’s because he’s lazy. He prefers slacking off and taking naps. Because of his gem placement, he doesn’t have eyes. However, the visor Heinrichite wears allows him to “see” by scanning objects and viewing them as green wireframes.
