yes i had to educate myself more. what i dont under stand is the phenomenon that i keep finding. like in this one.
i have a video of this one but cant seem to upload it. this is the one that will turn silver looking as it moves side to side.
iv even had some come out with a rainbow of colors the same way this one came with silvery flash.
i do have a theory. these stones came from a place where the guy was very private about his works. he talked about rocks and heat and i seen paper work for a 20,000$ stone. unfourtanitly i was young and passed it off as old crazy talk. the size of the stone i have that does the silvery flash and some times the raindbow is the size of a persons head if not slightly bigger i had two of them the other i busted with a hammer it was (black red and white in layers) and began working on small pieces to educate my self on lapidary work. this stuff is hard its scratches quartz crystals that i have with ease. when i take my crystal and attemp to scratch my unknowen stones aftert iv polished them it leaves a white streak that wipes off clean with no make left behind, could this old man knew how to do the cvd method??? i honestly belived he did. these are granual type stones but when worked on properly there is only one way to notice it and its from the girdle. i live in north west florida. we dont have stones at these sizes. unless there down in the bottom of the black marshes. i have found opal here. but as stated by otheres there isnt any opal that look like these. that iv been able to find.
the red and black show the same effect but stronger. also some pink came out of all the red and black and white stone. i honestly think i need to create a new post now i think iv gotten off the topic this was ment for
