Time to tune in for more input from the greater PS community. I picked up this ring advertised as aventurine........and then discovered that the allure was actually an aqua component to the coloring. It is a pastel ring but the translucence gives it both a stronger aqua in some light and a moderate mint color in others. I'm thinking it's a chalcedony of some type......any thoughts? For a moment I wondered if it could be a dyed stone although not sure that dye would retain the translucence throughout the stone and remain even plus shift between mint and aqua? Any feedback, info or education to contribute to this "new to translucence, but loving it" person?
