I have read as much as I could and looked at every image on the internet...and yet I'm still not confident if these are diamonds. Why? Because for every precious gemstone, there are 10 other stones that look exactly the same. 😂 I know kimberlite, blue ground, natural erosion of diamonds...
I believe this is calcite, but just wanted to get other opinions. Milky white. Filling cracks in Mississippian (or maybe Pennsylvanian?) limestone in the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. That's my stubby toe in the second pic for scale. :)
Thanks in advance!
Not exactly sure if this is even what i think it is but if i believe to have found a specimen how do i go about getting it analyzed? Any info would be greatly appreciated and thankyou in advance for your time!
What is it? It looks like it has pieces of multiple minerals. There's a section with crystals, looks like maybe some pyrite, some parts look oily, very few dark blue specs, a section that looks like hematite or jasper.
I'll try to clearer photos another day because my phone camera can't quite...
SOLVED euchroite? green quartz?? What is it?
More minerals/ gems from the box of random rocks I found in my basement.
Blue-green, translucent, scratches glass.
I don't have any background in this but I'm trying my best with the materials I have.
What is this? Based on my googling it looks like a variety of corundum like ruby. I have no experience in this stuff but found a box of a bunch of minerals and gems and need help ID'ing them
