Indigo Gabbro or Mystic Merlinite is a newly mined crystal from Madagascar. It has amazing colors from light indigo purple to black. Gabbro refers to a large group of dark, coarse-grained, intrusive mafic igneous rock chemically equivalent to Basalt. The vast majority of the Earth's surface is underlain by Gabbro within the oceanic crust, produced by Basalt magmatism at mid-ocean ridges. Gabbro often contains valuable amounts of Chromium, Nickel, Cobalt, Gold, Silver, Platinum and Copper Sulfides. The name given to Merlinite is by no means a random act. It's source in Cornwall, England has long been associated with the legend of King Arthur and his sorcerer Merlin.

Quartz is the second most common mineral in the Earth's continental crust.  It is mainly composed of Silica or Silica based minerals.  Although Quartz is known by a variety of names, the most important distinction between types of Quartz is that of macro-crystalline, individual crystals visible to the unaided eye, and micro-crystalline, where aggregates of crystals are only visible under high magnification.  There are many forms of Quartz including Chalcedony, Amethyst, Citrine, and Carnelian which are results of mineral impurities or heat treatments.

The Ocean Jasper deposit, even though it was found only a few years ago, is nearly gone and the material is becoming hard to find.  The deposit formed as a Rhyolite flow but has been completely silicified. The Rhyolitic eyes or orbs come in an astonishing array of colors and color combinations. The back ground can be white, pink, green, red, or yellow. Botryoidal formations as well as white and deep green druzy are also common. This deposit was discovered at the edge of the ocean. It can only be seen and collected at low tide. The area has no road so the material must be transported to civilization by boat.  Several other types of jasper are found in that area now but the orbicular Jasper is gone.

Lapis is a rock and not a mineral because it is made up from various other minerals. To be a mineral it would have one constituent only, and Lapis has several including Lazurite, Sodium, Aluminum, Silicon, Oxygen, Sulfur and Chlorine. Most Lapis contains Calcite, Sodalite and Pyrite. The best color is an intense blue that is lightly dusted with small flecks of Pyrite. Lapis takes an excellent polish and has been made into jewelry, carvings, boxes, mosaics and ornamental objects.
