Amethyst is a purple variety of Quartz often used as an ornament.  Upon exposure to heat, Amethyst generally becomes yellow, which some refer to as Citrine or "burnt" Amethyst.  It occurs in color from a light, slightly pinkish violet to a deep grape purple.  It is widely distributed as a mineral.

CL201B  This is a cracked Moroccan Geode.  They vary in size and where the geode is cracked but most will be approximately 3".  They all have a sparkly white inside and you will receive both halves. These are an overstock item.

Geodes are geological rock formations which occur in sedimentary and certain volcanic rocks.  They are essentially rock cavities or vugs with internal Crystal formations or concentric banding.  The exterior is generally Limestone while the interior contains Quartz Crystals and/or Chalcedony deposits.  If the Geode is completely filled with Crystal, being solid all the way through, it is then called a nodule.

CL202C  This is a repaired Fossil Fish Knightia eocaena from the Eocene Age from the Green River Formation, Lincoln County, Wyoming.  The very detailed complete fossil measures 4 1/8" from head to tail x 1 1/4".  The fossil fish specimen is in light colored Limestone matrix measuring 5 7/8" wide x 4 1/4" x 1/4" thick. This piece broke and was glued back together as clearly seen in the photos, still a great fossil. These fossil fish lived some 50 million years ago.

  In southwest Wyoming (and parts of Colorado and Utah) in the Green River Formation are found some of the world's most outstanding specimens of fossil fish.  The Green River system was composed of three lakes:  Lake Ulinta, Lake Gosiute and Fossil Lake.  These Eocene Lakes lay in a series of intermountain basins formed by geological events that uplifted the Rocky Mountains during the early Tertiary time.
The Climate was much different from the desert-like climate of this area today.  Both the fauna (crocodiles, alligators, boa constrictors and some subtropical fish families) and the flora (such as large palm trees) indicate a climate much like that found along the Gulf Coast today.  Large amounts of ash found in the sediments indicate that volcanoes were particularly active at this time.
    
The fossils found in the Green River Formation are between 40-60 Million years old and are in excellent preservation.  The most common fish found in the formation is the Knightia, a herring-like fish.  They are found singularly or in large groupings. These groupings are referred to as "Mortality Layers" and are believed to have been caused by extensive ash fall-out after volcanic eruptions. Some of the other species of fish found in the Green River Formation are:  Phareodus, a carnivorous fish often found up to 2 feet in length and having many sharp teeth.  Mioplosus, a true perch, and Priscacara, a sunfish-like fish with stout dorsal and anal spines.  There are also turtles, stingrays, crocodiles and alligator gar-fish.
The fossils of the Green River Formation - each one unique - are some of nature's finest art. They are highly valued by collectors the world over.

Jasper, also known as spotted stone, is an opaque, impure variety of Quartz that is usually red, yellow or brown in color. The mineral breaks with a smooth surface and is used for ornamentation or as a gemstone. It can be highly polished and is used for vases, seals, and other decorative items.

Agates mostly occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or waters containing silica in solution possibly derived from the decomposition of silicates in the lava. The siliceous matter is deposited in regular layers resulting in the banded or striped formation.

Onyx is a banded variety of Calcite. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color except shades of purple, blue and black. It is used for vases, bowls, beads, cabochons and other items. This type is found in Mexico and Pakistan and is often carved and polished into various items. This material is much more readily available and softer than the gemstone commonly called Black Onyx which is a silica gem.

Agates mostly occur as nodules in volcanic rocks or waters containing Silica in solution which is possibly derived from the decomposition of Silicates in the lava. The Siliceous matter is deposited in regular layers resulting in the banded or striped formation. It is very unlikely that you would ever find an exact duplicate of any type of Agate, Brazilian or other.

Quartz is the second most common mineral in the Earth's continental crust.  It is mainly composed of Silica or Silica based minerals.  Although Quartz is known by a variety of names, the most important distinction between types of Quartz is that of macro-crystalline, individual crystals visible to the unaided eye, and micro-crystalline, where aggregates of crystals are only visible under high magnification.  There are many forms of Quartz including Chalcedony, Amethyst, Citrine, and Carnelian which are results of mineral impurities or heat treatments.

Jasper, or spotted stone, is an opaque, impure variety of Quartz that is usually red, yellow or brown in color.  Picture Jaspers simultaneously exhibit several variants such as banding, flow patterns, dendrites or color variations.  This results in what appears to be scenes or images in a cut section of the Jasper.

Pyrite, or Iron Pyrite, is an Iron sulfide with isometric Crystals that usually appear as cubes. It is brittle and can break or powder easily. Its metallic luster and brass yellow hue have earned it the nickname of "fool's gold" due to many miners mistaken it for the real thing. Ironically, small quantities of actual gold are sometimes found in Pyrite. It is the most common of the sulfide minerals and is usually found with other sulfides or oxides in Quartz veins, sedimentary or metamorphic rocks.
