Ok so what do GOOD MDMA crystals look like? From what I hear its the see thru / white crystals that are the best right? The brown sugar stuff is shit yeah?
Only had it once before and it was around a year ago, stuff that looked like brown sugar and tbh it may as well have been it was shite, hardly any effect off it.
So whats the good stuff look like?
The person im getting it off is convinced that MDMA is either purple or brown and doesnt beleive it can be see thru / white.

All the MDMA crystals I've had were white/see through, upon crushing just a white powder. You can get it in all sorts of colours and brown can be just as good as any other I think. The simpsons had a picture of some pink crystals but someone had just dyed them, his gallery no longer has any pictures anyway.
But when I strip it down to logic, it seems that white would indicate a better synthesis and purity but that may not be true.

There was a day once when I knew a guy that knew lots of guys everytime bar none the Molly was different. Should be pure white crystal fluffy stuff but had it all ways the best was grey rocks curiously.

You can't judge the crystal by its colour, I'm afraid, Spade
Best I've ever had was light brown - knocked yer socks off
dr seuss 19-06-2007 09:12
aye, i've had some horribly good orange stuff too.

Ive had some very potent white stuff. Anyone notice that MDMA produces a very different buzz from pills even very clean pills. I think its all mental as I get a nice buzz of good mdma but get a horrible buzz off pills.
I think my body/brain just hates pills but accepts powder with open arms.

atm i have 3 types of crystal - very light brown/orange (tan) , purple tint see-thru & pure white. All orgasmically good! All very well produced (each batch had some 10g/14g crystals!! , a sign a good production i believe! )
Ireland was flooded with brown sugar stuff 2 years ago. It was very strong & rushy but very dirty. Just badly produced. No big crystals. Meant to be more of the same stuff goin about at the moment but i've no intention of sampling it.
haribo1 19-06-2007 09:56
The size of the crystals has nothing to do with it. Some routes produce microcrystaline product that will look more like a slightly glittery powder. If the stuff isn't white, then you have to accept that there IS something else in there with the MDMA, but it may be harmless.

Rightio. Ok dokey. She's apparently getting it from a diff person this time anyway so should be decent.

So many posts explaining, but not one picture

Xtal size it down to how it was worked up. if it was hcl gassed from the final A/B wash it will be very fine ineed.
but if they then dissolve it in a alc then slowly re-xtalise the xtals will be bigger.

I've had browny stuff, white stuff, and purple stuff. It was all amazing. Definitely no way to tell. Just get it down, and don't expect a massive, rushy come up, like with pills, it's more gentle, but the peak is much better. Perhaps you were expecting a violent come up, and then was underwhelmed, last year?
TheSpade 19-06-2007 21:04
Nah the peak was non existant, barely noticeable even after 200mg.
Treacle 19-06-2007 21:15
Better luck, this time! It should be top notch, even if you batter pills.
TheSpade 19-06-2007 21:29
I've done pills 3x this year so tolerance should not be an issue.
Tranced 19-06-2007 21:48
I usually get brown mdma, it's as potent as it can be really, in accordance with erowids doseages and certainly gets you battered. Had white that was just as good.
I don't think colour means much, you just got some shit mdma.
kobi 21-06-2007 16:04
I've had brown crystals, orange powder and white chunky crystals, all of which were better than any pills I have ever had. (In fact the oragne powder was the best ever!)
According to many cladestine reports online, the crystals have to be washed from a brown-yellow color to get the pure white crystals. Maybe this step is done lazily or not at all by hurried manufacturers.
As there are a number of routes to MDMA production, it is not entirely unlikely that a small amount of by product (be it purple, orange or otherwise) could make it's way to the final product, depending on the method used. Event tiny amounts of impurities could colour the end product. Or, it could just be done to enhance the marketability of it. It is not unheard of to have food colouringin ampheatmines for example...

My contact for MDMA seems to have gone off the radar and isn't getting back in touch with me. *sad face*
haribo1 21-06-2007 17:08
I suppose the only way to test MDMA powder, other than inbibing it, would to be to run a melting-point test on it (like in the film 'The French Connection where heroin purity was tested). It's not all that hard, but I guess people don't put any toxic crap in there. I would still like to know what it's cut with. A few years ago, the 'trade' price from PMK (for MDMA production) was LOWER than that of BMK (for speed production) so it's not a big cost issue. I think that back in the 90s, powder was pure, now it's cut. I say this because 200mg should have knocked anyones box off!

Hmm doesn't really want to be 'dark' brown IME.
That apart ~ *shrugs* ?

Brosn speckles are usually unreacted safrole & the orange could be unreduced nitropropene (if it were MDA). I've seen slight blue & green tints due to Wacker oxidations, but washing in acetone removes those just fine.

One time I got some MDMA crystals and they happened to look like my amethyst crystals that I'd been making jewellery with. Having said that this was also rather strong MDMA.
Or, it could just be done to enhance the marketability of it. It is not unheard of to have food colouringin ampheatmines for example...
Reading that is starting to make me think that half the time it's done for marketing purposes. Take note though that colour doesn't = strength.
Treacle 23-06-2007 09:06
You have NO idea, until you take it. The chances of it turning out to be shite are much less than with a pill, though.
Aros2k 23-06-2007 11:35
There was a lot of orange stuff a little while ago, and i've had white, grey and i'm sure pink lol

A mate has sorted us out for T in the P this weekend. Only problem is dosing it, apparently theres about 2G all in the same bag and its impossible to be sure if its 2G as it was eyeballed. Us then trying to eyeball doses is going to be hard.
Do you think its better to assume we have 2G and eyeball divide into suitable doses or just do finger / pinkie dabs in the baggie?
