Deb, I'm not locky enough to know one rock from another, but, I do know beauty when I see it, and these are gorgeous! I love the basket also! Perfect for holding this wonderful collection of rocks! Do I see turquoise?Hugs~~~
Ya got some beautiful Agates in there!! Love the collection and the basket. It's been years since I've been to a Pow Wow :(
Pink opal *spots the frog* what pretty babies!And yes, rocks, um... ROCK ;-) I collected a bunch in San Juan Island. I can't wait to share!
that one big one is so round...like a gianr marble...what is it? love rocks too !KAT
Amethyst, malachite, tigers eye (blue and brown), rodocrosita, jade, petrified wood or is that pietersite? Agate? That's all my guesses! LOL! Love them all! Sorry I haven't written, hopefully tomorrow ;o)
I'm not good at rocks at all - I would guess one of the green ones is malachite. But whatever their names are, they are beautiful. Love the frogs! Oh, and the basket... gorgeous!
Yep I see turquoise & agate too, I need my "Wonder Book of Gemstones & Rocks" for the rest, these are a major cool haul Deb!!
Looks like I'm not the only one with a love for rocks out there! Here's some of whats in the basket of treasures...the big white one is agate and although you can't see it in the picture, it has a bunch of crystals with rainbow inclusions inside when you hold it up in the sun! The one at the top is actually malachite but the lighting in the photo does make it look like turquoise! There's another malachite below the big round marble which is ocean jasper! I got that one because it reminded me of a planet!The two pink ones at the bottom by the frog are rhodochrosite. The other pink one by the frog near the top is rose quartz, although it looks like amethyst here. ( I wish I could afford pink opals Magaly. Great guess on the pinks!)There's two wonderstones (banded ryolite), one is on the bottom left of the frog. This one shows the bands the most. The other is above the two pink rhodocrosites. That one is more plain and looks brown or tan on one side and its red on the bottom.The one above and to the right of that stumps me. It looks like tiger eye on one side and fire agate on the other. I will have to look closer with the loop! There's a small piece of fossil rock on the bottom just left of the frogs nose. And I think the small black one is jet. The grayish one on top is agate. The large flat black one the left is the real mystery. I was told by the seller that it was called pit pocket petrofied wood. Jeff said he probably meant to say "pitch pocket". But pitch would then be more like amber. I've been searching on the web and find nothing called pit pocket or pitch pocket petrofied wood. The guy did say it was rare and found at only one location. If anyone out there knows any info on it let me know. I just fell in love with it because to me the "pits" looked like stars in the universe! Way cool, huh! Thanks for all the great guesses and letting me share the stash with ya'll! Can't wait to see yours Magaly! Stacy's probably getting anxious for another road trip too, huh!!! Hugs, Deb
Love your rocks!!! More then that I love your basket.It's that color theme of yours again!!!
Love rocks ~ should know the names but don't ~ Love the basket and the rocks! Wow ~ namaste, Carol ~ (ArtMuse Dog) ^_^
Yeh, I was good with my guesses ;o) I have lots of petrified wood, but I have never heard of pitch pocket petrified wood??? But, I do think what you have is petrified wood. I should take some pictures of mine to show you Deb ;o) Did you know a lot of rodocrosita comes from Canada? I wonder if yours did ;o)
I like it!
I love those stones. There is nothing more beautiful than the works of art from Mother Nature.
