You are in a great area for sure. That jade looks like top dollar for sure, probable worth a small fortune! I think what you are calling amethyst in granite might actually be ruby, looks like other pictures I have seen

I want to make some knife handles, so don't need that much. Plus I am sure shipping could be killer. approx 12-14mm x 6-8mm x 4-6mm

Yes, almost certainly garnet for the lavender-pink stones in matrix.

I have new pictures with one of my rock. I read about garnets and I saw that garnet has no cleavage. I did some photos more closely and noticed some pretty good plans outlined cleavage, so I think is`nt rhodolite. I find the rock in a place with thermal water. I suppose the crystal was subjected to a thermal or pressure shock. This rock may be a pegmatite? And what its the red crystal?? Thank you and Happy Holidays.

That jade is gorgeous, and I for one and very jealous! Keep the pictures like that one comin!

EDIT : I see that a particular type of Chinese jade is INSANELY expensive now. Just looking at this link I've provided, if your jade is even close to the quality they are speaking of you could quite possibly have a large chunk of cash in your hand!

I have lotza jade specimens from dredging. My best is a Chinese Royal Blue as the most expensive on the planet. My bud George Stokes traded a big boulder of jade(his doorstop at the shop) for a 75' -3 masted sailing schooner in the 80's and man alive what a party ship that was-John

That sagenite with fortification agate is very nice. I would sure like to see how that one cuts and polishes. The brecciated jasper is also very nice with the contrast between the black and yellow.
