    This was so dope!!!

  5. Kewtie on November 24, 2021 at 9:10 am

    The 1st fluorite specimen kinda looks like a chocolate chunk cookie. They are both stunning!

    Acting like you need to know everything isn’t arrogance. It’s curiosity. I need to know everything (not today, but eventually).

    I was just watching this video again (it has two of my favorite people after all!) and just realized what a wonderful moment occurs at 11:20. Natalie is wrapping her head around ‘phantoms’, since in faceted stones the result of a phantom would typically be called zoning, and she asks if it is like striae. As a gemologist, she is referring to the internal curved lines seen in some colors of synthetic flame fusion corundum. Curved lines can be seen inside some of the synthetic gems under the right lighting and magnification, showing the curved cylindrical growth of the spinning boule formed by the flame fusion process. This is indeed very similar to phantoms in that they both follow growth and are often more or less visible depending on direction and the color of the mineral/gem. Jordan is hearing striae from a mineralogical perspective, which is completely different and refers to a surface feature (striation) that appears as grooves on crystal faces. This is a wonderful example of how shared vocabulary can differ between disciplines, even when they are so closely related. I love the gemologist/mineralogist videos!

  9. Faithin Jesus on November 24, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Great guy to have on. But hey girly you said boring peridot… I knew my Birth stone was yuck, oh you rubbed salt in wound, Lol.

  10. Yvonne Morgan on November 24, 2021 at 9:16 am

    Illinois in the US, but I also love English fluorite… Frasers Hush, Hilton, Rogerly, Blackdene… and so glad I’m not the only one with a bit of a compulsion.

    Also there is enough fluorite out there in rough form. No need to cut the quality intact specimens

    My son and I love your videos. This was really cool! But must I also say, I’m in love with your clothes. Such beautiful tops. Striking blue, and the reddish brown with small print and cool neckline. Where did you get them?

  12. margaret difford on November 24, 2021 at 9:19 am

    Great interview , Jordan was an enlightening guy.

  13. Lucian V. on November 24, 2021 at 9:25 am

    This is what I call quality content. Really appreciate this channel and the information it offers. Thank you.

  14. Felisha Penney on November 24, 2021 at 9:25 am

    Beautiful calcite nicely colored

  15. kelly hoover on November 24, 2021 at 9:26 am

    Jordan Root. You did great on the show on u tube. I am interested in amethyst gems from Georgia. I have collected a few pieces for my grand daughters but none from the states. I do have some Arizona peridot. How do I reach out to you or how could you refer me to someone I can purchase Georgia amethyst from? Thanks Jordan.

  16. reicirith on November 24, 2021 at 9:27 am

    Love the way he thinks about minerals. The rarity of the formation just so is why I love minerals too. They’re not just pretty, but geometrically, statistically special.

  17. FallenStars YT on November 24, 2021 at 9:30 am

    Looks like a peice of the nether sjsjsjsksk

  18. Brandy Paris on November 24, 2021 at 9:34 am

    It looks like a mineral that would be on Minecraft.

  19. cross cutter on November 24, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Jordan is my favorite guest i have seen so far. He understands my collection, what has meaning to me. He also uses one of my favorite answer to the "I have a dumb question" questions. "There are no dumb questions" though I add "only those not asked". Just totally love his attitude towrds collecting. Thank you for having him on.

  20. Kyle Ellis on November 24, 2021 at 9:36 am

    it looks like a computer

  21. Leo The Cat on November 24, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Illinois is so much more awesome than I thought

  22. Kewtie on November 24, 2021 at 9:40 am

    Natalie: okay, so, why not cut it?
    Me: why *would* you cut that?!

  23. Gremm Paltakin on November 24, 2021 at 9:44 am

    Now I have to buy some Fluorite! That looks so cool

  24. Iranian SubUrber on November 24, 2021 at 9:48 am

    What a clown

  25. Mike Ferguson on November 24, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Thank you! I truly enjoyed listening to both of you. It was an intelligent, passionate and informative conversation and you made my day.
    Both of pieces you showed are insanely beautiful and you simply blew my mind when you explained the processes involved. They are beautiful, natural, unique and irreplaceable treasures. I am happy to see that they are in good hands.

  26. Nickalous Cromer on November 24, 2021 at 9:53 am

    You should bring the Crystal Collector on the channel with some South Carolina Amethyst, and have another video with PaleoChris or WILD KYLE showing Calcite crystals in clam shells.

  27. Amy Forbes-Richardson on November 24, 2021 at 9:55 am

    Omg, was watching this guy and kept thinking, "he’s got top bee on ther spectrum" and he is!
    Me too 😀

  28. Matthew Webb on November 24, 2021 at 9:55 am

    That is a very fine Illinois fluorite specimen.

  29. Pablo Jimenez on November 24, 2021 at 9:56 am
