Cool Rocks

I went to Utah last week and on a hike came across a weird layer in the sandstone that had tons of what I think is agate (disclosure: I took geology as a freshman in college so that was only almost a decade ago...). I picked up a pocketfull of some really neat ones that I think I'm going to put (at least some of) into the aquarium:



Anyone else have any cool rocks that you submerged in the name of decor?

Here are some of them in the tank:

I had a 4# chunk of rose quartz i kept in a freshwater tank for years. No pix though because it seemed to be photo shy. Light did weird things to it. Never grew any algae. Dirt would not stick. Lost it moving once, haven't found another.
