You could select the odd colored stones and check the specific gravity to at least get you fairly close to ID.

If you have difficulty with any of them I'd be happy to scan them for you.


That would be awesome! Thank you Stephen! There are a couple that don't really seem to fit I have an idea of what they might be but I don't really want to cut them before I know. Can you pm me the address to send them to?

I don't have a specific gravity scale, yet. I thought the same thing though so I ordered one.
