View Full Version : What is this??

Last time a was in America I bought a stone there from a cute little shop which had loads of stones and crystals etc.

At the time I wasn't interested in crystals particularly but I found a really lovely stone and now I'm wondering if it's a proper one (excuse my terminology).

If anyone has any ideas, it is about an inch wide and has lots of little clear crystal-looking bits inside with pale blue fracture type things around the edge. It also has a tiny bit of reddish-brown (about 1mm at most) just below the surface.

I'm don't think it will be anything as it was only about 50 cents but i thought I may as well ask.

This sounds a little like a geode slice ~ Is it flat like a pancake?

no, it's curved and stands about at about a cm at the highest point.
I'm thinking it may be just a pretty stone?

Where in America were you?

It almost sounds a bit like Azurite..

It sounds like a small agate geode with quartz crystals.
