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.

Bill
