Wow what a great thread.

Is this list 100% complete? Is there an official list somewhere?

I have always wanted a Bloodstone, it is way out of my price league though.

Being Rolex, of course there are variants and sub-variants of those variants. Here are two images of “pyramid” stone dials I found, lapis lazuli and orange coral, both on DDs. Are there others?

Same here! Geez, you nailed and gave proper names to dials I've rarely seen and identified a lot of the dials I've only heard of: mythical until now. The sumptuous pictures are simply too good to be true! Thank you for your dedication and effort.

Let's buy this guy a steak dinner and a case of champagne.

With all the exotic stone dials Rolex has crafted, I wonder how a pure 24k gold dial has not been made?

Or 100% Pt or Ag either, for that matter.

The meteorite dials we see in Daytona’s and DD’s (and now a WG GMT-II) are really the metallic version of the thing we generally call a space rock.
