ID help... Chrysoprase?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

These two specimens are about 6 pounds each and I found them a couple years back near LSD, but can't seem to figure out exactly what they may be. The color in the photos is almost exactly same as looking at the specimens in person and is very pretty light blue/green. Figured it was a blue/green Quartz and was going to tumble some of it with the Grand Son, but figured I better get a positive ID before breaking any of it up..... Any ideas?

Well fellers got a positive ID, after cutting some and realizing how soft and fractured it is I had some thoughts leaning to Fluorite so took one to RockAzona yesterday while showing a home to some new tenants. It is indeed Fluorite....
