Meet Stacy Linn Brown

Stacy Linn Brown’s career has led him down many paths; as varied as pilot, school teacher, contractor, prospector, and artist. Stacy teamed up with Colorado Bob Ross in 2014, and together they prospect the Four Corners and offer mineral and fossil tours.

Stacy has been an artist all his life. The concept of Fauxlenite® emerged from his natural experiments joining rock and crystal structures. He continues to refine his art to new levels of creativity, energy, and beauty through a wide variety of forms.

What is Fauxlenite?

Fauxlenite

Fauxlenite® is the trademarked name chosen by Stacy Brown to label his artwork consisting of replicated crystal structures, carved of different stone types, to form the look of a real occurrence in nature.

“The first of the word FAUXLENITE, is “Faux” – as in fake, not real. The ending of “ite” gives the idea of an oxygenated crystal structure.

The fake elemental symbol elemental symbol Bs was created to enhance the overall visual package of fake crystals with a fake scientific chemical composition. elemental symbol Bs stands for bullshit and/or S.B., my initials backwards.”

Example:
BsSiO2 is carved from silicated stones (Fire Fauxlenite, Clear, White, etc.)
BsKAISiO2 is carved from granites/feldspars (Mahogany Fauxlenite, Watermelon)
BsPbZnCuFeS(Cd)AgAuSiO2 is carved from “Pride of the West” ‘Zebra Ore’ (Zebra Fauxlenite).

So, the word FAUXLENITE was created to ONLY represent my Artwork – what I personally created, carved, pieced together and signed.”
