    An interesting looking rock. Since it is an active ebay auction, and the item # is posted, I'm moving to the ebay forum.

    My first impression, looking at all of the photos, was that it is a coticule. But I wouldn't swear to it.

    By looking at the auction its a Coticule I wouldn't get all excited about it since you can see some BBW showing on the top of the stone.

    Here is a striped coticule I had and sold years ago. Glued to slate, not a natural. Was a recently harvested piece from Ardennes.

    If you mean mine I have no idea. This was before Bart began posting the names that Ardennes called the different veins. Whatever it is, it was a cool stone, and like a lot of other things, I probably should have hung onto it. .............

    I'm going to be honest for some reason I was down for blowing that $300 to get this Stone (I never was the smartest cookie in the jar) but on the bright side hopefully now I have a chance...[emoji3]

    The person who kept bidding up the original listing and then retracted was a real you know what.... This is a constant problem on usa ebay. I flat out told him to cancel my bid or scuttle the listing because he exposed my high and then anyone could have spite bid me a penny below mine at the last second.... He completely tainted the whole listing... Having second thoughts is all well and good but they bid like well over a dozen times... So not right....

    He is a decent guy (the seller). Apparently, he has had a bunch of buyers try to do really shady stuff to him recently... It's why we can't have nice things, they attract every bad element on there...
