What stone could be This


#1

Can it be Agate?


#2

Possibly. But the image is blury so its hard to make anything out other than black and orange banding.


#3

I believe it could possibly be banded agate. I recognize the style of banding, but since the picture is blurry, it’s a challenge to confirm the identity of the stone…

I have done a lot of agate hunting, which is why I am going with agate.


#4

It is after my experience a variety of agate or a tigereye originally who was caught in a second melting “pot”.
When it comes to reality of geology it is such a mace of posibilities. Again a cert lab test will sure tell what it is.


#5

The translucency on the two ends is a clue of chalcedony in origin; I’m still saying it is iron oxide (FE2O3) stained banded agate. Colors are too translucent to be tiger’s eye.


#6

Blurry picture but if your stone looks like one of these, then it is TigerEye.
