I need help identifying 5 different stone beads, please

0 votes

Hi! This is my first time joining the Q&A and I'm really excited that there is true help out there for this clueless person (me).  I purchased stone beads at a bead expo years ago, but forgot what the beads are made of.  Can you please help identify them for me?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The first necklace looks like Jasper. The dark blue one looks like either lapis lazuli or sodalite. Not sure about the cylinder heads. The last one looks like it's turquoise (the gold streaks are pyrite). Good luck!

Thanks for your help.  The dark blue ones turned out to be dumortierite.  I know I paid quite a bit for those in particular (probably because they're not as common as the others.)  Have a great day!
