Zircon is an important gemstone of many colors, and is an historical gemstone used for thousands of years. Its color diversity is caused by traces of certain impurities, some of which are radioactive. These radioactive forms of Zircon must be heated to stabilize them for use as gems. In fact, many of the gem forms of zircon are heat treated to enhance color and increase transparency.
Rutile is the most common natural form of TiO2. Rutile is well known for its habit of forming needle-like inclusions within other minerals, especially quartz, in the form of long and slender straw-like crystals; hence the term “rutilated quartz”. Rutile inclusions are also responsible for the chatoyancy effects on some gemstones, such as Star Sapphire. Twinning is very common, with various forms including sixlings, eightlings, knee-shaped twins, and v-shaped twins. (conjoined twins?)
Rhodonite is well known among collectors for its beautiful pink and red color. Rhodonite often has black manganese oxide veins running through a specimen, giving it the distinct appearance of pink with black crisscrossing lines and flower-like formations throughout. These are the forms most commonly used as gemstones, especially in beads and ornamental objects. (Also, guessing the gems she fused from are Pearl (round top gem); based on the ruffle top and thin arms, and Ruby (the lower red gem); based on her thicker arms and legs, red color, and hair texture.)
Padparadscha sapphires may be little known to the general public, but they are treasured by gemstone connoisseurs. Points of contention include how pink or how orange these sapphires can be, and whether certain tones are too dark to qualify. Some padparadscha sapphires are not evenly salmon colored, but rather color zoned with pink and yellow. –Ironic that she is undervalued on Homeworld but the gem is actually more valuable than normal sapphires.
Fluorite makes a beautiful gemstone that comes in all colors, and can often be multicolored with two or more contrasting color within the same gemstone. Multicolored Fluorite gemstones often show banding patterns. Most Fluorite gemstones are from deeply colored stones, but they can also be cut from the less intense color forms. The most popular color for Fluorite is purple, and deep purple Fluorite can closely resemble Amethyst.
Not my favorite. He looks a little to airbrushed to be traveling the desert, and his neck kinda looks like a chicken neck but A+ for effort. 1.5/5 too much detail

This one is pretty good. He looks realistic without looking trashy (cough cough Apple) He seems a bit uptight, though. Loosen up, buddy. 3.5/5 i have nothing to say this one actually looks like a camel
Another realistic-ish one, I see. She’s…. Okay. I’m not a fan of the hair details and she looks like she’s scheming against me. 2/5 i don’t trust her

Adding to things that are long overdue, I’ve decided to upload the QR codes for my town pathways and streams and such. This is the first collection, the paths themselves. I wasn’t going to let my paths out into the world when I first made them, I kind of wanted them to be personal to my town to get more people to want to see my town, but now I kind of want to see what other people can do with these!
You don’t have to, but if you want to, why not send me your dream code if you do use them, so I can take a look around? ouo
(And I know the brick isn’t really THAT pink, but it’s like a.. salmon pinkish color, y’know? Heh.)
There is one universal law of anime, and it is that there is always a beach episode. There is always a beach episode
Mob had fallen asleep beneath the couch blankets again,
curled into the cocoon so that the blankets served double as his pillow. He was
woken up sometime later by the sound and brightness that came with Reigen
swishing back the curtains.
“Wake up, Mob. We’ve got plans.”
Mob opened his eyes. Reigen stood over him, wearing swim
trunks, a white tank top, and enormous sunglasses with the price tag still
dangling off the right ear hook. He had globbed suntan lotion on his nose and
shoulders, and he thrust a mesh bag to Mob containing roughly the same outfit
but in a smaller size—sunglasses and all.
“I’m overworked and you’re traumatized. I don’t know
anything about mental health but there’s no way a day at the beach can be bad. So get changed it’s beach time.”
Reigen sat down on the couch beside Mob, one foot pulled up
and resting on the other knee, and he pulled out an assortment of deflated floaties
from his own bag. He uncapped the mouthpiece of one—a duck by the looks of it—and
started to inflate it.
