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.

Jasper, or spotted stone, is an opaque, impure variety of Quartz that is usually red, yellow or brown in color.  Some 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.

Rubellite is a particularly beautiful and colorful gemstone from Tourmaline family. The Tourmaline mineral group is chemically one of the most complicated groups of Silicate minerals. Its composition varies widely with Sodium, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Lithium, Aluminum, Boron and other elements. It has a wide variety of colors including black, blue-black, brown, yellow, red, green, pink and is rarely colorless. This mineral is found in igneous rocks, like Granite Pegmatite, and metamorphic rocks such as Schist and Marble.

Natural Amber is an organic, time hardened fossilized resin material of vegetable origin. It came from a species of Pinus Succinisera (Pine) trees around 45 million years ago from the Baltic region of Europe. Amber is a soothing material that is both calming an energizing and said to bring clarity of thought and wisdom. Reconstituted Amber is made by melting pieces of natural Amber and allowing it to cool and return to a solid state. Real Amber is not available is large sizes suitable for making into spheres or other large polished items.

Marble is a metamorphic rock consisting of Limestone but composed mostly of Calcite.  It is used extensively for sculpture, building materials and has many decorative uses.  The pure white Marble is probably the most common form known, but the characteristic swirls and veins of many colored Marble varieties are usually due to various mineral impurities such as Clay, Silt, Sand, Iron Oxides or Chert.

Petrified Wood is a type of a fossil as it consists of fossil wood where all the organic materials have been replaced with minerals while retaining the original structure of the wood.  These minerals are most often Silicates such as Quartz.  Other minerals, Manganese, Iron and Copper, in the water or mud during the petrification process gives Petrified Wood a variety of color ranges: black - Carbon; green/blue - Copper; red/brown/yellow - Iron.  Petrified Wood can preserve the original structure of the wood in all its detail all the way down to the microscopic level.  Structures such as tree rings and the various tissues are often observed features.  Although Petrified Wood can be found worldwide, it is rather rare in larger quantities and at times can be difficult to obtain by the average collector.

Calcite is a Carbonate mineral that is most widely distributed on the Earth's surface.  It is a common constituent of sedimentary rocks with Limestone in particular.  A Calcite formation can take on many different shapes and sizes which is dependent on the location, ground water occurrence and temperature.  Calcite is usually white or colorless but can be gray, red, yellow, green, blue, violet, brown or black.  The deeper the color is usually indicative of the definitive impurities from the earth or water.

Jasper, or spotted stone, is an opaque, impure variety of Quartz that is usually red, yellow or brown in color.  Some 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.

Dendrites are branched or tree like inclusions, usually manganese or iron oxides that are caused by irreversible aggregation of small particles forming large cluster. Dendritic crystal growth is common and resembles a snowflake formation or frost patterns on a window. Dendritic crystallization forms a natural fractal pattern. The term "dendrite" comes from the Greek word dendron, which means "tree". It has only been in recent years that researchers have begun to understand how dendrites form and these ideas were developed by chemists and mathematicians working in disciplines called chaos and fractal geometry. Colloidal-sized particles move in random paths in a phenomenon called Brownian motion.

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.

Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive igneous rock. Granites are usually medium to coarse grained, occasionally with some individual Crystals. It can be pink to dark gray or even black depending on the chemistry and mineralogy. It is a hard and tough substance is used mostly in construction and landscaping.
