    pebble
    (31 items)

    I've added a couple of necklaces to my collection recently, but just what are the light blue stones in the first photo?

    For comparison, the other necklaces in the second photo are:
    (l-r) lapis, green aventurine, dyed blue jaspar/Swiss lapis, mixed agate, chrysophase.

    The new one isn't dark like the lapis, and doesn't have the sparkle I would expect if it was blue aventurine. It's not banded like blue agate.
    Could it be chalcedony? It's got me stumped! Help me please! - Mystery solved, thank you Kyratango! Dyed blue jaspar also known as Swiss lapis.

      Hi Pebble! Don't know how I missed your delightful collection of necklaces...
      Your mystery stone is dyed blue jasper called Swiss lapis or German lapis (it can be confused with sodalite too...):

      I have a ring with one:
