Anyone Good With Stone Identification?







So I was thrifting today and I found this piece along with some other shells and coral. On one side it seems very much like a stone. Could be glass? Could it be something interesting or just a broken piece of a vase LOL? Opinions would be great. It's definitely iridescent. I don't think it has any value I just think it's gorgeous.

Thrifting is fun.

I am no expert on minerals.

Always fun to see what we can find.

[@1073121,Leggs] Yes this was a local type place:)
Leggs · 46-50, F
[@10807,ravenwind43] Those local ones tend to have a lot more variety and upredictability.
I have found that Goodwill tends to have a selection that never changes, and I wonder then where all the other stuff goes.

[@1073121,Leggs] I would agree, though the Goodwills near me change out their stuff pretty frequently. I don't know if it's everywhere, but Sundays are dollar day for certain colors. It's crazy in there! People leave with filled carts.

It looks like a labradorite. One of my favorites... they're so beautiful.
StarLily · 46-50, F
[@18164,StarLily] oops I see someone else already pointed that out.
ravenwind43 · 46-50, F
[@18164,StarLily] Thank you for replying nonetheless

I don't know. But it sure is pretty!

[@10807,ravenwind43]

That is cool.

Do the colors ripple when you play loud music?
ravenwind43 · 46-50, F
[@68716,JoyfulSilence] hmmm. Never considered that but willing to try.:)

I hope it sings, too.

Yet if it only sings in your mind, that is fine, too.

I can't even tell the difference from Richards and Jagger.
