This questions comes from Andrea - who emailed it in. I'm posting it on her behalf:
They are the large barrel shaped stones in a paisley of brown, rust, and beige
The dealer called them "marian" stones from Afghanistan (that's how he
pronounced them -- he didn't know how to spell it).
I've been searching online for different spellings or even a sighting of a stone
that looks like this, but haven't been able to find anything.
There is something called a Morion stone, but it's a smoky quartz...definitely
Hopefully, someone can identify them for me.
Again, thank you for all your help.
