'Pure' LSD Crystals Emitting Light?
    #14793390 - 07/19/11 06:27 PM (9 years, 9 months ago)

I am fascinated with this entire forum, I can spend hours and hours reading the first-hand experiences people have with all kinds of different substances.  Some might see the information and experiences given by members as jaded and not accurate, but I feel the information shared here is MUCH more accurate than ANYTHING written on the DEA website...

One thing I read recently states that pure LSD crystal, when shaken in a vile, will emit flashes of light. It is my understanding that light greatly deteriorates LSD, as well as exposure to heat, etc.  Could this be just another mystery no one can truly answer about LSD, except for individual speculation?  Or is there a scientific explanation for this?

Keep up the good work, fellow Shroomery posters :smile:.  This is truly the greatest place on the internet for TRUE evaluations of mind altering substances :smile:.

lots of crystals emit light when shaken, not just LSD crystals.

but thats definitely an interesting thing about crystals... so weird. they hold energy.

I think it's called bioluminescence. LSD isn't unique in containing this property.

Still pretty cool though.

Thanks for the information!  Do you think this bioluminescence can degrade the crystal?  Again, it's widely accepted that light diminishes the quality of LSD.  So logically, the emitting of light when shaken SHOULD affect the quality.

I am not claiming I am right in any way.  I could be completely off base.  I know there's someone here with the knowledge I hope to acquire :smile:.

i doubt its enought light to degrade the crystal. direct sunlight would be one of the worst things to do to crystal, i would imagine.

There are a few bodies of water in the world (fewer than 5 I am told)that contain micro-organisms that are bio-luminescent.  Any movement in the water, be it from fish, boats, wind etc., causes a trail of glowing light.  One of which I have been to, the 'Luminous Lagoon' in Falmouth, Jamaica.  A very eerie phenomenon. 


Here is a link, though the photo does not do it justice:

The degradation effects from such a minuscule amount of light would probably be very negligible. I'm assuming that the mechanism behind the flashes of light is the generation of electricity through friction, much the same way lighting bolts are generated. That in itself may cause more degradation than the light emitted. I honestly don't know for sure though. Just guessing.

I doubt the light produced by the crystals is the the right wavelength to degrade LSD.

I don't think bioluminescent is the right word, because that refers to...well...biological life forms, which LSD is not.

Commonshaman you should look around here for the thread with microscopic photographs of chemicals, think it might be in the pub somewhere, it will seriously blow your mind! Lemme see if I can find it

The images are amazing geometric colorful designs that you would expect to be computer generated

it is pretty cool

Right :wink: I think it's triboluminescence.

@drr, I hope you, myself, or someone else can find a link to those photos!  Maybe the very hallucinations we experience can be seen in the most basic form of the molecules of the substance.  I'm a firm believer that psychedelics allow for an altered state of consciousness, not just an altered state of mind (alcohol, pharms, etc.)

But, most of the world would call me a whack job for my beliefs.  I don't like things forced down my throat, so I choose to not to so to others.  I have my beliefs, and I stand firm in them.

ACID educates you about the outside world.
MUSHROOMS educate you about YOU.

I think the term you are looking for may be peizioluminesent.

Yes, LSD crystal throws off blue/purple light in the darkness when disturbed..

RedSnapper, do you know this from experience?  I have had many, many experiences with psychedelics, and feel I am fairly well connected in that area.  But I have yet to see LSD in crystal form, and neither have any of my friends... What a rare honor it would be to see!

I know right? I feel like that is a rare privilege!

I always think how amazingly satisfying it must be to the chemist to hold the final product in his (not bare!) hands, and know its power...

You'd probably have to be pretty close to the chemists in the drug food chain to get your hands on pure LSD crystal.

One thing I've always told people who ask 'who do you think makes the acid?"  My response EVERY time is, 'I don't know, and I don't want to know'.  The less we know, the less those who shouldn't know (enforcement..) know.  Given the current state of the lack off acceptance of psychedelic drugs, the last thing we need is for a large LSD producer to get taken down.  Look what happened to the global distribution of LSD when Pickard got busted...

Let The Family take care of the production.  They are as inpenitrable as any organization.  Let's just sit back and enjoy the sacrament they can produce :smile:.

Yep, I guess that stuff was a little more common 15 years ago. Still, seeing and handling it in that form if only once is something to never be forgotten.

Trying to remember the details of that night though..
