Questions about some stones

  1. Oct 4, 2011 #1
    Hey, I have some questions about some stones we got from an old lady.
    I can post pictures of them, I'll start in a few moments. :)
    Any information about them would be greatly appreciated x

    Can you lay the rocks down, no fingers and take clear pictures of them?

    The first looks like quartz.

    The second, the shine, might be hematite, but I'd need a better picture.

    Near as I can tell, the first one is a stone, the second is a rock, and the third is a shard. I could be wrong though, the pictures are rather fuzzy.

    What did the old lady say they were? You shouldn't accept rocks from strangers.

    I'll grab a better camera and put some more photos on later on

    Why is the subject of each photographic post "re: does this forum include euclidean geometry?"?
