View Full Version : Identify a stone?
09-06-2004, 10:01 AM
Hello all! =)
I went to a craft show yesterday, and saw a necklace with a rather unusual stone....I can't even find anything like it on the net, although searching for "yellow stone" is just asking for trouble. :evil:
Anyhow, it was a mustard yellow...not much for any other colors in it at all...maybe a little veining, but not much.
Got any ideas? :confused:
Thanks in advance!

Hi Carrie, welcome to wearable art. I have no idea what this could be. It could be something as simple as dyed yellow jasper.
A picture would be helpful but from your description I assume you don't have access to the stone.
Did you by any chance ask what the stone was?

yupper..I asked....and she said she had no idea...lol..no help there at all!
and I LOVE this thread! I've spent days just going backwards into the archives reading all the show and tell threads..you guys are awesome!
thanks for the welcome :wave:

It might be dyed howlite too. Post us a pict!

boy, I wish I could post a pic of it...maybe I just should have bought it instead of telling my sister "of course I can find a stone just like that!" :p
I looked up howlite, but that has lots of veining in it, and looked up yellow jasper, which is close, but not mustard-y enough...
thanks for the help and great suggestions tho...I'll have to keep searching!
(who'd a thunk there'd be so many mustard colored rocks in the world?)
How about honey jade? it can range from a muted butter yellow to a mustard color.

Could be yellow turquoise, too. Try to post a picture.

I was thinking yellow turquoise too. Moukaite was another one but that naturally has shades of red/brown and cream all mixed together.

i was thinking mooakite, too...i've got some strands of it that have some purely mustard yellow pieces.

it might be yellow jasper...I did a search on ebay...and it kinda looks like the attachment that I hope is on here! but it was a flattish rock piece, so that could be why it's hard to tell...it was also fairly cheap...$20 for the necklace, so it couldn't have been anything too fancy!
thanks everyone for your help!

Here's a list of every stone I can think of that can be found in yellow or mustard colors. Remember, when you're dealing with stone, the shades can vary from pale to dark. So if you look at one photo and it's not quite the same color, it could just be a variation in shading.
"Chinese" Topaz (looks like some form of jade)
Garnet - Hessonite
Garnet - Spessarite
There's a couple more, but I can't think of them right now. Perhaps you'll find what you're looking for in this list.

char...bless your heart! what a fantastic list...thanks so much to you and everyone for their input...
I'll be doing web searches tomorrow to see if I can find it...
Thanks so much!
