    Picture one, I'm curious on what causes the melting bubbly look in the white rock , lower left.

    Second picture. The rough pinkish stone on right side. Could it possibly be bone? Very porous , not extremely light , not heavy. I've never seen something like that before. Also the deep red stone at the top, would that be considered jasper?

    I was curious after you posted these to know as well. I think the green rocks are serpentine but that's just a guess from what I can see in the pics really. Hopefully someone more knowledgable than me will chime in.

    Going to have to get closer on the first one. The red one in the second set is most likely a jasper. The porous one you feel might be bone is probably a large piece of shell worn down. Alex has the right idea for the green stones~ various serpentines. Overall looks like you've been busy

    Everyone Believes they have gold buried in the back yard... small wonder so few ever look for it.

    Thank y'all. I have collected so many since moving to Illinois. I go at least once a week to the beach and can't help but bring back a couple of pockets full of rocks. Many fossils, a lot of pyrite , and plenty of assorted rocks.
    I just don't know what to do with them all. I wash them as soon as we get home and spend days pondering what they are. Then they go in to my basement closet.
    I'm interested in polishing with a dremel. And perhaps trying to sell on Etsy. I just don't know yet.

    The bubbly white one is chalcedony - isn't it fun? Kinda a waxy feel. I've taken my first lapidary class and it is a blast cutting and polishing rocks you have found yourself. See if there is a rock/gem club near you that teaches, or goes on field trips.
