I want to try to see how huch it is worth. I is really pretty, I am wondering should I look it up in a book, of rock collecting. It is dark brown and it has light brown spots in it, It was given to me years ago about 10yrs, I always kept it. I was wondering would it be classied as a Stone or a rock? May I can take it to an Art Musem and they can give me some information on it? I need some ideas of what I should do about doing some research on it? So hat do you think? I think it would make a nice Necklace. Or who know It might be wporth money? Ok, I was just wondering what I can do to do some research on it?

It sounds like a wonderful piece of stone. I would take it to a museum or to a jeewelry store to see if they can identify it and tell you what it is worth.

Hey Steph, Yes I said I might do that too. How are you? I hope all is well with you and your Family, Have a Happy New Year and a Properous one! I haven't seen you around much lately? Look at you you are buzy. It kind of remind me a Topaz. It could be?

Many years ago I was a rock-hound and would have known what your rock is. However time has passed and I've forgotten. There is probably a rock-hound living near you. All you have to do is track him down. I do remember that this type of stone, although it is pretty, is not very valuable. I have a clock made from this stone. Look for a book on rocks at your local book store, or library.

Thanks for your information, I bet that Clock you have is really pretty. I did go to www.lapidaryworld.com and I got a little information. I was wondering can you upload the picture of your Clock here? If it is too much trouble it's ok. Happy New Year to you!

I think rocks and stones can be so pretty. I love looking at rocks. I read Joys answer, she gave you a good answer. Good luck on finding some info about your stone. Do you hav ebig plans for tomorrow night? o far I don't have any plans, I normally just stay home. My little guy wants to spend the night with me. He wants to spend the night tonight, but I have to go someplace in the morning wth my mom. Take are Marcie, have a safe and happy New Year.

Rather than going to an Art museum, you should go and see a geologist or a mineral museum. They will be able to identify the stone you have, tell you how common it is and possibly where it came from too. Geology is the study of rocks etc, and is a pretty broad area of study and work. A friend of mine is a geologist who works on active volcanoes. That is to say, he specialises in volcanology.
