Here's one:
What is the the clown of the mineral world?

some more help:

first forget about rocks. Then think of simple things.

what keeps future into a cycle? (one word, just visualise)

what drags the past along in its fall? (one word)

And then, what mineral is related to both?

I'm still working on the first riddle.

"I am many, dragging the past along in our fall"

Star

I am one, keeping the future into a cycle

Moonstone

Would the clown be happy, or sad, or evil?

Barbra and Dan&Sally: not the correct answers, but you're getting close with the idea of the moon. There's another very simple thing that literally "keeps future into a cycle"

Once you find it, then "what drags the past along in its fall" should be a bit more obvious (at that point, remember that this is the 'riddle of the keeper stone'. Keeper of what?)

ps: dchallener, would your clown be fool's gold?

that is a VERY good answer. Probably better than the one I was thinking of.

The answer could be of some common mineral/rock, like, if it could be shale or basalt. could it be breccia or feldspar though.

But i think it could be Granite.

And a Labrador is a keeper too .... :wink:

Maybe Labradorite?

it's none of these.

May I repeat again that it's impossible to guess what the mineral is, unless first solving the two small riddles (none of which have been solved yet): 'what drags the past along in its fall?' and 'what keeps future into a cycle?' (check advice in my previous post)

While it's true that the moon keeps future into a cycle (cyclic moon phases), the answer you need to find isn't the moon (nor the sun). It's something even more obvious. You know it.
