Galzanite Material in Tritanix 3 | World Anvil

Galzanite

Galzanite is a pale lavender mineral commonly found in crystalized form or in a specific kind of mushroom. The crystals are found underground in veins and have to be mined out, typically from a mineshaft. When found underground, they're found either in geodes imbedded in the rock, or in crystals growing out from cave walls. They're used as jewelry, decoration, and even used for spiritual purposes. The mushrooms are eaten by most people at many meals, and are found in caves or in special gardens.

Properties

Material Characteristics

Galzanite, in any shape, is a gradient of deep blue, purple, and pastel pink. The crystals, in any form are the purest form of galzanite. They form inside geodes that grow inside stone underground, they can form as points along the walls of caves or tunnels, or they can be found in ore veins that need to be refined. When it's in its crystal form, it's semi transparent, and light glints through the faces. The base where it begins to grow is a deep blue, while the very tips are a bright, pastel pink with each end fading into a violet center.
