I have a black stone that I thought was black agate...until I got up close with the lens and mega light. I now see brown in the stone. Not like Tigers Eye. How can I post a pic of the stone for assistance?

There is a tool here to upload a picture - just use the picture upload icon.

Yes, the picture uploaded now. Is the main gemstone opaque? Does it have a color sheen or chatoyancy (i.e. fiber bands that move in the light)?

More opaque.....It is absolutely pitch black until extreme light hits is. Then there are "patches" of brown. The 3 6mm round stones on the end are agate, and I thought the large stone was also.....until this! lol
