here are some pic can you tell me what you think. the stones are hard to test .NO MARKS WITH QUARTZ I DO NOT HAVE ANY TOPAZ TO CHECK? WHAT DO YOU THINK.
They most certainly look like chalcedony. See if you can get hold of a feldspar, and see if it scratches it.
THANK YOU . what do you think there are worth.and how would you sell them.should i polish them or have them appraised? chalalcedony?are there different types.Hershal thank you very much for the information.the one stone with color scraches the clear one.i am thinking of having some rings made like i said when light hits the stones they are truly awsome.do you think they could be two types minerals?cause of the color one scraches the clear one .THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME .DARYL
The value of each really depends on each individual piece - i.e. size, transparency, color. I would definitely recommend polishing some samples to see how they look polished. If there is an enhancement such as banding it could also increase the desire of the stone.
any other opinions open for offers
