Thank You!!!! I have (again) over 100 cabochons. This will make it much easier to narrow it down- I was googling it as red mineral.
Now for banded agate. I am going to post a picture of what I believe is banded agate from your description. It looks exactly like tigers eye until you hold it up to the light- then it becomes transparent leaving beautiful lines? If so, I believe I may have a few (maybe 10 or so - all different sizes) thin.I included one that i doesn't fully match the others but who knows. I know I have more, I believe them to be in the box labeled "If it looks like a rose it's a rock" I do not know protocol here, but if out turns out to be what you collect, I would like to make a gift of the pieces I have to you.To give them to someone who loves them would have made my Aunt very happy. There is no catch, you did not solicit me and there is absolutely no monetary exchange. If I can do this, may I send them to you via Minerals.net? As for the donation, I am giving money. They most likely could use that more than a specimen. It won't be much, but any little bit helps!
Also thank you for the picture tip- makes me feel better and know to send one at a time shot from different angles
