I'm proposing new gem-based bases off of Mookite and Chalcopyrite. Both are vivid and bright gems that can give tons of inspiration. I don't have mock ups (feel free to make some) but my desire is a BRIGHT gem base.

I adored Labradorite when its first version was released. I needed as many as I could. Saved for over a year only to see they had changed it. Dulled down the colors and made it more brown. To be honest I hate it, despise it (there's many more bases I LOVE then dislike).

I fully understand not everyone like bright bases, but not everyone likes dulled colors either. So I propose two bright gems to make bright bases. It'd only be 2 out of many gem bases and each one could be a different month.

They'd each be named after their gems and cost the usual 50 to craft.

Chalcopyrite:

Mookite:

I'm proposing bases (BRIGHT, COLORFUL, AND BOLD) be made using these gems as inspiration. Please comment, ESPECIALLY if you disagree. I like to discuss what could be improved to make the suggestion more liked. Thank you for taking a look!

For anyone who dislikes this base for being too bright please take a look at this. This is Chalcopyrite with Fluorite eyes (suggestion for gem eyes I'll be making) with markings and decor. Its toned down WITH MARKS but still just as beautiful! This is the exact same base as the mock up made less bright via marks, no saturation or brighness changes. It's easy to tone a lions colors down, but impossible to brighten them up! So before you dont support remember: We can't make bases brighter, but you can tone them down with just a few markings!

I love them! More-so the Chalcopyrite than the Mookite, but both are nice. I adore the Chalcopyrite's mixed colours, it has a more random pretty Speckled look about it and I like that, rather than a neater/more orderly look like a rainbow.

Thank you! The gem itself has a random pattern of spackling and I'm so glad that's what mheetu went with! It really captures the gem!

Thank for the support! I'm not gonna lie I was very angry XD I understand why it was changed but I dont find it fair to people that like bright based to have NO gem bases! So I thought its high time we get at least 2 lol honestly even if just something similar to Mheetus Chalcopyrite was added I would be incredibly happy but mookite would bring it to the ultimate gem duo!

I don't support Chalcopyrite. I get it, you want a vibrant gem base. But it's way too intense. I know we have blue lion bases, but this is straight up cobalt blue. Tbh, if it did become real, it's something I hope would be dulled down. I love Mookite's though. It's bright, but yet has this natural tinge that makes sense to it. It deserves to be bright, but not Chalcopyrite.

I appreciate the input :) I disagree but I do see where you're coming from. I know not everyone would love it but I do think plenty of people would be ecstatic with it :D

I don't like them. If we had more colorful markings, then it'd be a lot nicer than just more bases that are colorful.

Yes please, especially Chalcopyrite. I'm a sucker for multicoloured bases like that!
