I've never bought a cab, but I saw these, the price was right and I wanted them! So now they are mine. I have an idea of what some are, but need some help with the others. These are large - 2" X 1.5".

Here are my guesses:

1.) Not sure - mookaite?
2.) Priday Polka Dot
3.) ??
4.) Deschutes?
5.) Morrisonite
6.) ? Fawn with a red splotch and some streamers
7. + 8.) Original Owyhee
9. + 10.) Not sure - Polychrome? Gray orbs with blue and red borders.
11. + 12.) Willow Creek

Thanks!

-Jeremy

I agree with most of your list

My opinion would be
1.  Mookite
2.  Polka Dot
3.  Fancy Jaster from India
4.  Biggs
5.  Morrisonite
7, 8  Owyhee
9,10  Polychrome or Misty Mountain but Polychrome is more likely
11, 12  Willow Creek

#6 is problematic as there are numerous types of jaspers that could give a cab like this.  Imperial Jasper, an odd Bruneau, are a couple

Oh! you want that kind of identification. I was going to say that I lost some that looked just like those. LOL

Thanks Grant, but actually this is a lineup.

One of these cabs is accused of being sold for a steal.

Pretty sure 6 is a piece of Bruneau Jasper. I have have cut some nearly identical from my own hoard. That said it is not typical color or orb pattern but Bruneau does this once in a while.
