Hi everyone… I am pretty new at this, so please do bear with my lack of knowledge… Will be great if anyone can Share their view if these look like real nuggets or are fake ?
It is always difficult to tell from an image, one positive is we don’t see any white. What are you going to use them for? If you are going to cut them the answer will be revealed.
My guess is dyed howlite from China or India. Like Jason said when you cut it you will know when you see the areas that didn’t take the dye. Look very closely under a loop. sometimes you can see an area of matrix that fades from black to purple as the dye inters the stone. Pic. no. 13 kinda looks like that on the right side. Kyle
