Gem chrysocolla sure is expensive, was looking for a little more, but shelved it for now. If it's not gem (that is, chrysocolla in chalcedony) it will be softer but may still polish well. Also not sold by the gram, but still have value. Good luck.

It does look like chrysocolla and azurite. It does look hard. Test the hardness. If it is a 7, it would be $.25 per gram. Look on ebay.

It’s heavy for its size. When I see the guy I got it from I am going to ask him if he knows the silver content

A photo would help.  Pillow blocks do not normally have four holes.  I suspect you are looking at a cover.

Thanks, I am really happy that you enjoyed the stones on the site.  I do love Dryhead also!  It is such a great banded agate! I sure miss the hunts on those Texas ranches, they were the best of the best.  SO glad I have totes of Bouquets to cut whenever they feel homesick.  The funny and possibly sad thing is when I got home from those trips the best material was set aside and most of what was cut was unknowns or likely candidates.  Aside from a few that were "had to cut" stones.  I have never really cut much of the Walker Ranch plume either and know that I should get around to more of it.

I should update the site again as I have a ton more cut stones to post.  I don't know html so I put the site together way back when using "ImageReady" which was an Adobe product, they stopped making it after CS2 which was, i don't know maybe 12 years ago?  Anyway they just stopped allowing you to install it even if you owned a copy since on install it requires authentication and they refuse to give a code even if they see you own it.  Next time I change computers the site might be toast, I am not sure I could pick up html nowadays.

The pillow bearing in our clubs very old Raytech L-10S is bad.  There are no number or ID marks on the bearing.  A local Bearing shop had no idea.  On a similar bearing the 4 mounting holes did not line up.  I also have 2 of these machines so want a back up.  How do I find the right bearing.

All 3 play well with the brass buckles.  Great work!
