Is there a website that i can very quickly upload a picture of what i have and have it identified and the estimated value of the Crystal or stone?

So much depends on the quality of the stone, I would say any estimate from a web source would be faulty. Identification is one thing, value quite another...

You can upload one here and we will do our best. It is best if you tell us what you know about your specimen like it was found in Patterson, N. J. next to a silver mine. You could help by telling us if it can be scratched by a rock of known hardness such as a piece of quartz, does it react to a weak acid, like fizzing when a small area is touched with a weak acid. ( be careful of fumes and acid) or whether it is unusually heavy, or magnetic.
