Default 1W 445 in quartz

So I was digging around my basement and found this big quartz crystal.


I decided to shine my 445 into it and take some pics (great thing about pics, you cant see what happens in full color with goggles, but pictures are always safe to look at

The result was much more than I expected, the whole crystal lit up like a magical shard from a fantasy novel, and was so bright that even in my room in broad daylight, blue was the overwhelming color.

I already mined all the nuggets out, unfortunately. But I'll keep an eye out!
