I found this small jade colored stone on the Oregon coast north of Gold Beach. It is about the size of a large bean and appears to be a geode? Does anyone know what kind of stone this may be?

It is an interesting rock.  Probably a quartz geode, maybe chalcedony. It is hard to tell just from the pictures.  You should put it on a chain and wear it as a pendant. Quartz and chalcedony have a hardness number of 7 and should not be scratched by an ordinary knife.
