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.

Rhyolite is an igneous, volcanic rock that is composed of Felsic, or Silicate minerals such as Silica, Aluminum, Sodium and Potassium. This material, also called Volcanic Tuft and Rainbow Rock actually began as volcanic ash spewed from the mouth of a volcano millions of years ago. This ash was exposed to heat and pressure that resulted in turning it to stone. The bright banded colors are a result of exposure to high concentrations of iron oxides. The material is similar to that of Granite, Pumice and Obsidian but due to the cooling process when formed, Rhyolite did not form any crystals, thus changing the texture of the material.

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.

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.

Aquamarine (from Latin: aqua marina, "water of the sea") is a blue or cyan variety of beryl. It occurs at most localities which yield ordinary beryl. Beryl is a mineral composed of beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate. The pale blue color of aquamarine is attributed to Fe2+ (or iron). The Fe3+ ions produce golden-yellow color, and when both Fe2+ and Fe3+ are present, the color is a darker blue as in maxixe. In the United States, aquamarines can be found in the Sawatch Range in central Colorado and in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming.

Labradorite is a Feldspar mineral that occurs in large Crystal masses in Anorthosite and shows an iridescence or "play of colors."  Gemstone varieties of Labradorite exhibiting a high degree of iridescence are Spectrolite, Moonstone and Sunstone.  High quality samples with good iridescent qualities are desired for jewelry.

Apatite is a part of the phosphate group of minerals that was formed in igneous rocks and in metamorphosed limestone. Apatite is translucent or transparent and usually green in color but can be colorless, white, yellow, bluish, reddish, brown or purple.

Fluorite, also referred to as fluor-spar, is a mineral composed of Calcium Fluoride. It is a widely occurring mineral found world wide and is often found with metallic minerals such as Galena, Sphalerite, Barite, Quartz and Calcite. Fluorite may fluoresce strongly in ultraviolet light which may be due to the presence of some impurities such as Yttrium. Blue is the most common color but red, purple, green, yellow and white are also frequent. It can be used in high performance telescopes, camera lens, enamels and in the making of opalescent glass.


Malachite is a Copper Carbonate mineral that often forms botryoidal, fibrous or stalagmitic masses.  It is often the result of the weathering of Copper Ores and is commonly found with Azurite, Goethite and Calcite.  It is typically associated with Copper deposits including Limestone which is the source of the Carbonate.  Malachite is found in many regions world wide and is usually shaded green in color.

Selenite is a Crystalline variety of Gypsum.  It is often transparent and colorless.  If the Selenite Crystals show translucency, opacity and/or color, it is caused by the presence of other minerals and may be "druzy".  Selenite often appears to have a "cat's eye" appearance especially with the polished variety.  It will often magnify images when the translucency is very clear.

CL210c  This is a 2 wheel  Poly Arbor. The 2 wheels on this arbor are silicon carbide, one is 1.5" wide the other is 1". There is a shallow chip or two on the wheels but nothing a wheel dressing stick won't take out. The wide wheel looks like it's maybe 100 Grit  wheel and the thinner maybe 180. Both measure approximately 9" but I believe a 10" wheel would fit in this arbor. Bearings in both sides seem very tight. The arbor has holes above the wheels for Water valves. There is  tool rest on one side. Needs a motor, some bottom trays and mounted on a base board and it would make a very nice lapidary grinder or maybe just use as a tool sharpener. SOLD AS IS NO WARRANTY.

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. 

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.

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.
