New Jade, also known as New China Jade or Serpentine. This lovely pale green color is semi-translucent and like all jade, has a waxy soft shine.

Kyanite: A silvery blue mineral that is found naturally in bladed crystals. While it can be very pretty, most of the time it's used for industrial heat proofing applications.

Hematite: A metallic silvery steel grey mineral that is most composed of iron. It's very heavy, and cold to the touch.

Redcreek Jasper has such great patterns. Love the pencil-like markings!

    That's funny Mae! :) I really like picasso jasper too because it has those same lines on it, but redcreek jasper is just so warm so I think I like it just a hair better.

    Love this board.

Black Sardonyx - My first impulse is always to put these in my mouth! They remind me so much of the old fashioned strip licorice candies!

Blue Abalone - Made from the inner pearly layer of the abalone shell, this product has been dyed a deep blue and covered with a clear coat to protect the surface.

Red Abalone - Not strictly a gemstone, Abalone is a type of shell that is often used for decorative purposes. This abalone has been dyed red and given a clear protective coating.

Amazonite Cabochons - Soft bluegreen stone. The chinese version is light blue, but the russian version is more dark teal.

Malachite - Gorgeous soft green gemstone . Supposedly this can be somewhat dangerous to cut, so leave the lapidary on this to the professionals.

Turquoise - One of the favorite semiprecious gemstones across many cultures. Turquoise even comes in different colors such as green and yellow, or may have veins, flecks of pyrite or other distinctive features depending on where it was mined.
