Re: Re: Please help read the label!
Ironwood is a mineral or a wood? Petrified wood? This specimen seems definitely a mineral And is marked "Chalcedony" by my grandfather who was a knowledgeable amateur mineralogist.
I am uploading a photo of the other side which shows parallel striations in color, and shows two differently-colored zones.
Too, I have run across a number of agate specimens with faded, unreadable labels, but there is no way the information can be recovered. All these had been in storage for years.
Thanks for your help.
