I bought a very old collection from somebody who was making lapidary work in the 50's and 60's. I found three decorative rocks identified as Jessite, Frankosite and Tulasite. I also found some pieces of globular masses of crystalized quartz, these crystals are in good part replace by light red and mustard yellow jasper. When broken, these specimens of quartz produce a quite unusual bunch of red and yellow daisies. As the collector of these specimens was already dead when I purchase the collection can anyone help me to find the location of these specimens?
I checked in Dictionary of Rocks and in Glossary of Obsolete Names. None of the names were in these two excellent reference books. It think that someone made up the names in order to sell multi-colored quartz at a higher price. "Ite' should not be tacked onto any rock name and only to minerals which have been approved by the international board. I hope that someone can answer your question, but I think that your querry will probably be unresolved.
