This material is a new find from Madagascar. The deposit formed as a rhyolite flow but has been completely silicified. The Rhyolitic eyes or orbs come in an astonishing array of colors and color combinations. The back ground can be white, pink, green, red, or yellow. Botryoidal formations as well as white and deep green druzy are also common. This deposit has been discovered at the edge of the ocean. It can only be seen and collected at low tide. The area has no road so the material must be transported to civilization by boat.  This material is fast becoming a rarity in the Jasper ocean fields, so get one while it is still available.

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, Fairburn or other.

Obsidian is a type of naturally-occurring glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.  It is produced when felsic lava erupted from a volcano, cools rapidly through the glass transition temperature and freezes without sufficient time for Crystal growth.  Because of the lack of Crystal structure, Obsidian blade edges can reach almost molecular thinness, leading to its ancient use of projectile points (arrow heads), and its modern use as surgical scalpel blades.

They have also been found in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Vietnam, Nepal and Pakistan. Rubies have been found in the US states of Montana, North and South Carolina.

Kyanite is a typically blue Silicate mineral that is commonly found in Aluminum rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock. It is used primarily in refractory and ceramic products including porcelain plumbing fixtures and dinnerware. It is also used in electrical insulators and abrasives. It is definitely a collector's mineral.
