Some beautiful colourful conglomerates from Lappland Norway. I am thinking there are some red jasper and quartzites, but what is that blue material - chert? Can you spot something more?

Very nice, Kara, I always appreciate neat looking "puddingstones". [The "jasper conglomerate" from Ontario is a favorite.] As to the bluish pebble--it's really kind of hard to be certain, what variety of quartz to call this, just from a photo. Yes, I'd say that probably "chert" is as good a name for it as any.

That can be a very complicated question, and maybe not with a clear answers. The shades of red and purple--inclusions of iron oxide (hematite). The bluish... who knows! (That's my answer.)
