Any tile distributor will have enhancer for stone. That would be a great place to start.

Thinking the second could be jelly bean Jasper. If not, pretty sure it's from Malheur county, Oregon.

I absolutely LOVE psilomelane even though my fingernails are black for a week. I have never seen any with red around it.  Is the red as messy as the black?
Haven't worked any of the material. This year, I will be purchasing wheels.

This was a surprise stone for 2015. I picked up a few pieces in Tucson and it ended up being one of my favorite purchases that year.

I went silver picking yesterday at a friend's house.  He became the exclusive distributor for Coyamito agates from Mexico.  Got to search thru several 100 pounds of mine run material looking for cutting material and pulling out specimen material for Jeff to cut and finish.  Only other trip planned is to the Agate Expo in Cedarburg, WI this summer to sell my cabs and jewelry.

Would like to dig through some Coyamito's.

Killer willow creek, I bought a twenty pounder from the same rough as your cab, didn't notice all the pin holes prior to buying,  faced polished and it's one of my favorites. Love your Graveyard

This post actually made me revisit my camera pic, after visiting my local camera shop, after five hours or so research on line, I came up with canon g7x. I should be able to pick it up in a few weeks, keep you posted.
