    Different angles make this thing appear different colors. It has more bright red/orange color in hand. It appears more of a light peach color on my pics. At first I thought it was rose quartz but after rinsing off it appeared to be more of a chalcedony.Would this be considered a carnelian or sard type of chalcedony? SE Arkansas field find.

            It does look a lot like rose quartz but this stuff is more microcrystalline and has a very high silicon content that makes it more wax textured. We have some pieces of ferruginous quartz also and they are very similar in appearance until you shine light on them and they sparkle with the larger crystalline structure. The chalcedony doesn’t sparkle and the light passes through brighter.

            That has to be one of my favorite lithic materials! The light really makes it “glow”!
