My suggestion would be, if they are made of natural stones and not glass or other synthetics, onyx for both items or may be alabaster for the vase but of course, this is only a suggestion as objects can not clearly be identified by a photo only. :wink:

Best regards,
Christel

no jade for sure, it should be Marble "onyx marble"

Again, jade and green amethyst could have been ruled out by some simple tests.

to get marble rule out drop a little hydroelectric acid (use Gloves and Goggles and take safety measures) if you see chemical reaction ( you will see bubbles)
marble is composed of calcite (metamorphic) so it reacts with cold, dilute, hydroelectric acid.

Or, muratic acid, which is available at the hardware store from swimming pools.

Hydrochloric acid is muriatic acid. I think that's what he meant when he said 'hydroelectric' acid, which isn't a thing but sounds really exciting.

Right, I know that, :D but I'd never heard of hydroelectric.

Of course I didnt meant hydroelectric and i typed right "Hydrochloric" its stupid auto-correction that changed it. I am sorry

"Hydroelectric Acid" would be an awesome name for an 80s tribute hair metal band.

Musse4936, you're posting objects that one would find in most all the tourist shops in a Chinatown. Trinkets a tourist might bring home as a souvenir from their vacation. Usually costing only a few dollars and often misrepresented....

If that is the market you are in, I'm sure there are many other shops in the Philippines with similar wares. Do your homework. Research what others are selling and how it is being represented and the prices it is being sold for and how negotiable those prices are.

That's YOUR job, not ours.
