What do you think this is?
« on: September 05, 2022, 10:51:21 PM »
Good day everyone.
I was given this 25kg stone and was told it came from South Australia. Could anyone let me know what you think it is thanks?

It could be Aventurine. Wild guess though.

I second that.
25kg - make a nice cornerstone!

It is from SA so could be Cowell Jade.

Some of the rough stones at Cowell Jade factory look very similar, his shop was shut when i went through Cowell last month though.

Geology Rocks, I really dig it.

Whatever it is, it certainly looks good, need a decent size saw to slice that one.

Chookie2, if you're living in the Perth area, the Lapidary Club of W.A. in Riverdale has great facilities and seem a friendly group. I went to a show (pre Covid) that was held in their clubrooms, very impressive and looks like they have an active group that conduct field trips.
