I'm confused ;) I've got a few stones, crystals from Gremany and they're all labeled, but in German (or something similar, I really dont know :() So here's the list, any help would be greatly appreciated:

1. Sodalit (it's a dark blue stone)
2. Achat (white stone with blood red swirls)
3. Rhodocrosit (really pink, darker than rose quartz)
4. Aventurin (light green w/dark green specks)
5. Amazonit (I'd say dark aquamarine?)
6. Schneckenachat (black w/white swirls)

Thanks for the help O masters of shiny, hard things!

1: Sodalite
2: Agate
3: Rhodochrosite
4: Aventurine/ adventurine
5: Amazonite (a FELDSPAR-variety)
6: The german word "schnecken" means snail... so it might be what is called "turitella agate". The turitella agete is recognized by the sea creature and fossil snail patterns within the stone.

(Also, I found something in Love is in the earth by A. Melody called "Botryoidal Black Agate" (a black agate that displays a nodular configuration which presents, when polished, as both tubular/ orbicular configuratons and plumes.)

Hope this helps!
