It's Rock

I always envy those who make crystal kind of rock formation soap.  I've done it before but... far from good.  I bought this new silicone mold designed for making coal like soap for Christmas.  But I'm using it to make my rock soap looking more realistic.
I made some different intensity colors of orange and brown with sparkling mica and chopped them up in tiny little bites for embedding.
Then sprinkled these bites from light color to dark in layers into the mold and poured more soap layer by layer.
 This is my first try, not really what I expected, but still look like rough gem.  What do you think?  At least they smell really good in Yuzu fragrance oil!
