The herd (Explored)

The herd (Explored)
The Sunday Challenge for September 14th is "Get Personal! Something that you own." I like elephants and minerals so I thought that I would post some photographs of both. The minerals starting from the left upper corner, proceeding clockwise and ending at the center are quartz crystal, agate jasper (with jade "log"), unakite, tiger's eye, turquoise*, Dalmation jasper, malachite and lapis lazuli.

*The seller claimed that the elephant was carved out of turquoise but I suspect that it was carved out of another stone and dyed turquoise color. It does not have the striations that I would expect in true turquoise. It was an unusual carving, so I bought it anyhow.

Is the turquoise not malachite? Or am I looking at the wrong elly?

Esther has replied to PaulOClassic©
The faux turqouise has a grain similar to malachite (the green elephant on the left) but its color is too blue to be malachite. I suspect that it is dyed chaldcedony, but I am not certain.

lapis lazuli, drool... my fave. now here is a zen thing for you, they MUST all face east for good luck! This is a fantastic shot Esther

What in camera technique did you use?
3 years ago.
Esther has replied to Shuttering Yukon
I used a (front rump) side lighting and did a collage. I may have misread the challenge to be able to use a challenge from a prior week since I did not use any in-camera technique.

That's a real nice collection Esther, and really well put together. You could loan them out to me indefinately on a museum basis if you need more shelf space...assuming they're not life-size! ;-) Nice one.
