I just found out that numbers 66, 69 and 76 are dyed stones, AKA skypeople-made. I will have to dispose of them.

Aww, but they're still so awesome. ...I would take them off your hands.

All I have is stuff like Amethyst and Moonstone and other random stuff. My mother gets most of those things.

Thx all, from now on I'll try to get minerals in raw forms like #5 and #10 for example... Those are sure to be real

Well - I have a large rock collection, like 80# or so, but only part of it are minerals, most are interesting rocks. I never made photos of them all though. They're from all over the world, from abandoned and active mines, rock quarries, lava tunnels. I have Rocks that are over 2 billion years old and speak of the very dawn of oxygen atmosphere as well as very recently destroyed corals. Would you like me to get a digital camera and make some pictures?
I admit, they're not as beautiful as the images here though.
Oh btw - are you studying something like Earth Sciences or just interested in minerals as a hobby?
