Greetings from the Bluff Park Back Porch ( BP2 ), way up yonder on Shades Mountain (1,109′) in Alabama:

Minerals and Rocks = “The Good Life from the Ground”

Gemstone Guesses

We will continue down the Chalcedony path and look at all the branches.

To date:  Chalcedony is the crypocrystalline variety of quartz and includes agate, aventurine, bloodstone, blue chalcedony, carnelian, chert, crysophrase, flint, heliotrope, jasper, mtorolite, flint, onyx, petrified dinosaur bone, petrified wood, plasma, prase, sardonyx, thunder eggs, white chalcedony.

Due to the shear variety of this gemstone, we will not attempt to guess.
