    I would guess some type of quartz. Polished by wave action. I bet if you put it in a rock tumbler it would turn out to be a real beauty, from the color.

    That's a beautiful gemstone. It might be lepidolite (lipidolite) which is a Lithium bearing rock and has the same 'thin layer' type of construction which seems to be on your stone. Cheers, Mike

    Re: Found on the beach.

    Took it to several Jewelers. I got no definitive answers. A few of them thought it was some kind of dyed rock , but they couldn't tell me the type. The gemologist thought it was some type of agate dyed or something like that. None of them though is was precious. The mystery goes on.........

    Take it to a lapidary or rockhound club - they'll be more likely to know

    Could be dyed agate or a stone called sugilite, which is being used now in some jewelry.

    Good luck!
