identify this stone?

Post # 1
hello, i knows its kinda hard to identify a stone that i cant realy show u,, i guess i could post a pic, but i dont have any friends on here yet to view it.. anyhow this rock is orangeish, slightly transparent, and has alot of scratches on it, so its not the hardest material. Ive been in search for a lucky rock, and would like to know what this stone is before i decide if its it. Anyone seen a rock like this before? I may be wrong, but its from either montana or the oregon coast...

That really doesn't help. if it is not too hard,that eliminates the agates.It could fall into the calcite family.The last group is the. rock salt group,I sure you've seen the lamps made of this material, it comes in various colors is opaque-translucent,soft will scratch easily.it is as close as I can get to your answer given the data presented. Do not give up I only looked in one book but I think it is going to be a calcite,rock salt. most of these are very abundant on this planet.I will look into another text to see if I can narrow it down more.I wonder if you could put a picture of it on this site?

As far if it is the rock for you, I would let your intuition guide you. If there were 20 rocks on a table and as you passed your hand over it a few times the rock that is for you will stand out or as we say will call to you. That will be the rock destined for you.

It sounds like agate.

Here is a pic I found that shows a variety of its orangish colors. Agate comes in a rainbow, but its the only semi transparent, soft stone I know of off the top of my head.

Agate is a 7 on Mohs scale. But a tumbled stone could have been kicked around with metal, or harder stones like garnet, berls, etc. Throw an agate with your keys and some change and you'll get scratches on it. You might be able to find someone who does lapidary work that could throw it back in a tumbler and get it to be shiny again.

It will most probably likely be agate- but there still is other options.

Take a look at this (there may be some yellow or brown ones in there too, but there's orange ones there):

Hope some of those match your stone.

Also, just make your photo album 'public.' This way everybody can see.

I've been in lapidary since the 70's and I carry agates and other crystals in my pockets at Mohs scale of seven + the brass keys or keys in general do not cause damage to an agate, if it is a softer mineral specimen it could sustain damage, when I work with agates using a diamond saw to cut and a set of diamond and aluminum oxide wheels to put a polish on the agates you get the idea of how hard it is, I am cutting and polishing what is sometimes referred to as zebra agate because of the black and white stripes.The best way is to actually see the mineral specimen for a more conclusive id.
