I've recently got my hands on a box full of treasures that have been sitting in someone's shed for years. I'm in Australia and have no idea where the collection has come from. Can anyone tell me what this is?
Has anyone got any guesses? I'm at a complete loss and would really appreciate any help you guys could give me!
It looks like emerald. See if you can scratch it with a pocketknife, emerald is very hard. Emerald will not be scratched by a pocketknife
Thanks so much, Weasel. Off to dig up a pocket knife now!
It scratched pretty easily and I noticed a rainbow within the stone when I was scratching it. Could it be green fluorite?
Yes,but google green gems and minerals and then you will have a list of probabilities.
