About a 7 inch high piece of meta-quartzite.  This is a jasper that has clear quartz with stringers of pink garnets.

Love this one.

Red enstitite.

Curious about this one. There is a stone that looks like sugar rock candy that is pretty common around here. I have found it in various colors and patterns including a brownish purple, blue and white striped and even looking almost identical to yours. Have never been able to identify it though. Does the rough of this stone have a shiny, sugary looking texture?

This world needs a phone app called LithicBeads for beachgoers so they can tap into your expertise in naming these well camouflaged beach rocks that are both amazing and beautiful.  That Washington Jade is truly off the charts! There really is no substitute for good pictures showing native state rocks, and I thank you for those you posted.
