Its not glass and most are unsure what it is made of. it seems to be some kind of stone that changes color kinda like an opal. one person I have spoken to thought he knew what it was but said it would be hard to make into a marble so it would be rare. this marble was dug by an old house. that had been torn down for 25+ years had not been any kids for 50 yrs. So I know it has some age. I have taken it to a local marble show and not one person out 20 was sure about it. some said old some said new some said rare. Any info or thoughts. Thanks patent1858

With the right angle of light and opposite side of the stone.

LABRADORITE (ALSO CALLED SPECTROLITE) IS CONSIDERED BY MYSTICS TO BE A STONE OF TRANSFORMATION. IT IS SAID TO CLEAR, BALANCE AND PROTECT THE AURA. IT IS PURPORTED TO HELP PROVIDE CLARITY AND INSIGHT INTO YOUR DESTINY, AS WELL AS ATTRACT SUCCESS. IT IS USED IN DREAM RECALL AND FINDING WAYS TO USE DREAMS IN DAILY LIFE. ENERGIES OF ANXIETY AND STRESS ARE REDUCED BY LABRADORITE. LABRADORITE IS SAID TO INCREASE INTUITION, PSYCHIC DEVELOPMENT, ESOTERIC WISDOM, HELP WITH SUBCONSCIOUS ISSUES, AND PROVIDE MENTAL ILLUMINATION

is there anyone that really believes this crazy BS?

Have you seen the ebay seller who sells cursed vampire rings and other stuff. They have been selling stuff for years. There listings used to go on and on about some relative of theirs who was a gypsy who collected magical items. They would sell a couple of item’s a month for around a $100 (real value $10 or less) with their fantastic story. There listings have been toned down in the last year or so.



I think this is the seller I was talking about

A very good friend of mine found out a few years ago that she had an older brother he had never known about. He was now living in San Francisco and living what most of us would consider a stereotypical San Fran lifestyle.
A few months after they reconnected he told her that one of his friends was very ill with AIDS and in the hospital. She told him how sorry she was and hoped his health would change for the better. He said it would...He and a bunch of his friends were going to channel there energy into a quartz crystal. They would take it to him in the hospital and their energy would flow out and heal him.
She says conversation took a very long pause as she could not think of a thing to say in response...at least not without alienating her new found brother.

try brubbing it on your teeth and see if it feels rough. If it is abrasive it could be a pearl.
