Gem silica is a bluish green to greenish blue variety of chalcedony that receives its vivid color from the presence of copper. It is often known as "chrysocolla chalcedony" or "gem silica chrysocolla." This piece came from Arizona which is considered some of the best quality in the world. Even though gem silica is one of the most beautiful blue gemstones, most people have never heard of it. That is because it is a very rare gem.
Mississippi Peanut Brickle stone is some I found in the back woods where I live. It's really called pudding stone, but the stuff I find has a very dark hematite matrix which brings out the tans in the pebbles. The dark hematite matrix if much rarer and stunning when cut.
Australian Dendritic Opalite. The dendrites are small inclusions that look like moss or plants within the rock, which are actually iron or manganese oxides within the rocks as they where forming.
Scolecite is mined around the world and has clusters of radiating needle-like crystals. When rotating a cut and polished stone the streaks of the needles has a gorgeous luminescence, shiller or cats eye quality.
