One came from a necklace my mother used to own, and if it has any value at all, I would like to re-make a necklace for her. The other I have in an old belt buckle. Probably pretty easy for pro's, but I have looked everywhere else online and still have no idea what these rocks are. Anyone?

Will you try to take a light source to your stone and see if light passes through it. That is called translucency. If light shines through the stone it will reveal some knowledge of the crystalline structure. Agate and chalcedony and some quartz will allow light to pass through. Others, too. Slate and chert will not.

It is definately not translucent.

Possibly jasper?

The colours remind me of Salvador Dali.

Fancy picture jasper. Very easy to work with and make jewelry with.
