I'm trying to identify the last (12) minerals/gemstones from a collection I've had since childhood. Can anyone help out? If any of these seem obvious, I've already id'd about 30 others and my eyes aren't being helpful anymore :)
The first two images below are the same-- just from different angles to show off the metallic inside.
Ok, here is my take on what they are:
1 and 2 are hard to tell from the picture - probably some sort of quartz or feldspar.
3 looks like a deep colored amazonite
4 is a plain polished rock
5 is a quartz cluster coated with a synthetic film
6 looks like a dull-colored sodalite
7 is snowflake obsidian
8 is probably jasper
9 is a quartz pebble, possibly a cape may "diamond"
10 looks like a dark aventurine or plasma quartz
11 is probably jade or a dark green chalcedony
12 is pyrite in a quartz matrix
13 looks like a mica schist
Thank you so much, hershel, I checked out all of that and they all appear to be what you said! Perfect :)
