Images appear on top surface. This is how this rock got the name TV ROCK White/translucent. Insight into self and others; seeing solutions to difficulties. Somewhat 3rd eye opening. Some find it helpful for amplifying dreams, imagination, imagery, fantasy states for creativity (not recommended if addictive or escapism tendency). May fall apart if soaked in water. These crystals behave like optical fibers and will transmit an image from one side of the specimen to the other. Place on a newspaper and the text under the specimen will appear on top of (rather than through) the specimen without any distortion. Very cool.
