Just for the benefit of readers curious about where this thread's title
originated, I posted it here by accident, and then cancelled it. It was
intended for the rec.pyrotechnics newsgroup, being a post about the
addition of small chinese firewcrackers to traditional style firework
mines. Sorry about the good, but evidently Chris made the best of it.
(LOL)

With respect to "singing quartz" and "di-lithium" crystals, I don't
really believe that I want to go there except for this:

Surprisingly, there was once a system for the identifiation of railway
cars that was produced by General Electric called "Singing Stones". To
the best of my knowledge this was the first passive transponder system
ever produced, and identified rail car information when a box full of
discretely resonant quartz crystals passed over an electromagnetic
system that activated them into oscillation, then detected the
resulting signals produced by the oscillating crystals. I believe that
this, while today archaic technology, was the pioneer among all passive
transponder systems today used in turnpike "Speed Passes", anti-theft
devices employ by stores, and even today in the passive tranponder
injected under the skin in pets to bring them home when lost.

I doubt that any of these systems today actually use quartz crystals,
but that was their genesis.

them betwen capacitor plates they will power a light, if you make it into a
tuned circuit at the same frquency as the whistle it will became a big power
source that you control with a voltage clamp it will then drive a load quite
happily and the output power will adjust to the load.

The Zeta Reticulans have been using it for years. it is more common on the
planet, however it can be made.

It is quartz with an inclusion of lithium dimer and a cold fusion raection
Li+Li>Ar + e +e takes place.

It can be made by growing quartz in an atmosphere of lithium vapour. Singing
saphire is known too.

I can't explain the urge that tempted me to try this, but the result
was suprisingly 'interesting'.

My attempts at making star mines that incorporated dragon's eggs were
singularly unimpressive, so I decided to try something unorthodox.
Having a case of chinese firecrackers gathering dust, I opened a few
packs, un-wove the fuses, and cut them off to a 3/8" length.

I primed the fuses by dipping them into NC lacquer and then Meal D.
Just for the heck of it I mixed 2 dozen or so with the stars in a 3"
mine. The results were absolutely amazing and if you want it, a real
attention getter! The stars went up per usual, but then the
firecrackers began popping. Of course there were two or three duds, and
one that went off on the ground, but most worked surprisingly well and
exploded just as the stars were fading and at their zenith.

I'm going to try this again, because it seems to be a marvelous
enchancement to a simple mine effect, particularly give the little work
or skill required to produce it. You may want to try this.

Count this as the 2nd best use for Chinese firecrackers.

Curmudgeonly, Harry C.
