this is one of my favorite specimen. i've taken its photo before but i want to take an even better photo one day, when i'm all grown up.
i was practicing lighting tonight and figured i'd record video of it.
the stone isn't prepped for a proper photo, so at one point (to illustrate this) i get light off of the surface and you can see my fingerprint.
too bad i couldn't get the deeper, super gemmy, smaller xtal. but it's a video so no depth of field :(
at 1:15 i switch to the xenon light source and you can hear it "fire up". kinda fun.
