  • $\begingroup$ actually the table is in focus rather than the rock in the first two. I have a hunch that if you back up a little bit but keep the rock centered in the picture, you might get the rock in focus instead of the table. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Feb 11 at 9:56
  • $\begingroup$ A piece of white paper under the rock might keep your camera from focusing on the pattern in the table. Please refer to the rock identification guide and add as much information as you can. $\endgroup$ – Spencer Feb 11 at 11:14
  • $\begingroup$ Hi Brandy, color is not always a good indicator of what type of mineral or rock you have but your images do seem to have a purplish hue to them. If you take new photos try to take them in daylight balanced light so that light is neutral in color. Spencer's suggestion for the white background is good. Photographer's 18% grey card would also be useful as a background. $\endgroup$ – Friddy Feb 11 at 23:35
  • $\begingroup$ the white zone is quartz very probably, the colored zones are going to be very difficult to identify, it's just a very hard stone of that grey teal color. To identify it they would probably have to cut a slice and put it in a microscope to see the light diffraction. $\endgroup$ – com.prehensible Feb 13 at 10:44
