1st - I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country). You might also consider adding your state (or country) to your displayed profile (SETTINGS -> EDIT PROFILE) - members may have more success helping you (your location may help, etc.)...

Toddspoint, Might be- it is pretty a pretty hard rock

ok thanks i will try that- I kinda doubt it's aquamarine too- probably a quartz- but just to be sure- I'll keep checking out blue green stones- i do have herkimer diamonds (which are quartz i beleive?) so i can see if it will scratch that- I -

chrysoprase
Well, I'm looking at images of chrysoprase, but that looks like a dense color, solid to me? The stone i have you can see down into it, it's more clear- it's a little hard to see it in the photos i posted- if you enlarge them you can see down into the stone a little, but not quite as good as looking at the stone in person- looks a bit more like a quartz or aquamarine might be- maybe a bit like flourite?

Well fotos reveal stones found in certain locations. Like plants can be the same species but location makes them differ . accordingly this applies to stones also.
