Please help ID inherited rocks.
« on: June 13, 2017, 05:18:47 PM »
Hi everybody!

I'm not too much of a rockhound myself (though I have  done a little digging for opal and used a lapidary for a thunder egg and a cab belt buckle and bolo tie) but my dad was. Well he's passed on and now I have some chunks of rock that he used to carve up stuff. I know one of them is marble but as I said, I'm not a rockhound. I can teach the heck outta ecology but sadly cannot identify minerals to save my skin.

Being not too savvy with forums (sister told me to give this a shot) I'm not quite sure how to post a picture but I have a link: http://imgur.com/a/0rUjl

Anyways, any info I can get will be greatly appreciated. Happy hunting!

It's late so I'll make comments another time, but thought I'd get the pics up for you at the least.

Need better pictures with some closeups.
Right now all youre gonna get is you got a couple buckets of rocks.
Looks like maybe some jade, petrified wood, marble or alabaster, too hard to tell from that picture though.

Thanks. I knew that the bucket picture would be a longshot but it was the only one I had of those. I thought that the other picture would be enough to ID them but I'll go over there to take some closeups and post them here when I do. Thanks.
