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.

CL202b  This is a repaired Fossil Fish Priscacara from the Eocene Age from the Green River Formation, Lincoln County, Wyoming.  The very detailed complete fossil measures 5" from head to tail x 2 1/2".  The fossil fish specimen is in light colored Limestone matrix measuring nearly 6 3/4" wide x 4 3/4" x 3/8" 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.

CL203b  Here is a very nice specimen of South Dakota Baculite and Clam.  The fossil itself measures 3 3/8" x 1 3/4" x  1 1/8" and has not been polished.  This fossil has a nice "fish scale like" iridescent color with good detail.  Overall, the specimen measures 5 1/4" x 3 1/4" x 4 1/8".  The Clam measures 1" x 7/8". This fossil was not correctly prepped but still a very nice specimen and a great way to begin your fossil collection.

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.

Soapstone, also known as Steatite or Soaprock, is a metamorphic rock or Talc-Schist. It is composed of the mineral Talc and is rich in Magnesium and is formed by the metamorphism of ultramafic protoliths and the metasomatism of siliceous Dolostones. It is a very soft material and may have a soapy feel when touched. It can be easily carved into decorative items as well as bowls or other cooking utensils. It is used by welders and fabricators as a marker due to its resistance to heat.

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.

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.

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.
