Help ID This Rock


Recommended Posts

That sure looks like the Apatite in jasper from Brazil that I bought awhile back. The location sure does not match unless you were target practicing in Brazil. Other then someone clearing out there rock pile I have no clue what else it could be. I sure would cut it up if I was you…it would make beautiful cabs.

Here is a link to the picture of mine.

I don't have a clue. The matrix in the photo doesn't resemble the jasper in the link. An exact location of where it was found might help... I also agree it could be from someone clearing out their rock collection.

Hello StoneKing! I think it might be Pegamatite, Tourmaline. - Terry

I would have a better chance shooting at a rock then trying to identify one from a picture. I did do a little research and found a blue beryl occurrence 15 miles south of Peach Springs called Blue Bird prospect (Bountiful Beryl prospect). The location maybe off but by the looks of the rock beryl seems to fit.
