    You're lucky to live in a place like that. Here in the Netherlands there are not many stones to be found that are really interesting.
    You Canadians have beautiful labradorite as well!

    need help identifying a purple stone...

    I tried to get my webcam to work so I could take a pic of it, but it decided it just didn't wanna work anymore so I'm gonna try to describe it... It's a tumbled stone I got in a bag of several stones, it's polished, and about the size of my thumb, and it's kind of rectangular in shape, but more rounded. On one end, it's a very deep dark purple, then there's a layer of a lighter purple, then there's a thin, white layer, and after the white layer there's a transparent layer (probably quartz). I was thinking it might be amethyst at first, but it's so much darker than any amethyst I've seen.......any ideas?
    well i got bones beneath my skin, and mister, there's a skeleton in every man's house. beneath the dust and love and sweat that hang on everybody is a dead man trying to get out.[/CENTER]

    It could also be dyed. Hmm, I would quess amythyst. The purple can always range.

    It sounds like it's probably an agate. If it's a very vibrant purple, it's likely dyed agate. If it's normal sort of amethyst colours, just dark, it's probably just purple agate. It might be a tumbled amethyst, but I don't think it's all that common to tumble it.

    Okay thanks you guys, after looking up some pictures on Google I'm fairly sure that it's purple agate. I have about five or six pieces... and if this isn't too off-topic of me to ask... anyone know some magickal properties of purple agate? It'd really help me out..
