First one is a La Verte, second one looks a lot like a La Dressante I had. They are vintage stones, so it's harder to identify. The side with the blach streaks looks Lo Dressante, but the other side makes my doubt. Could be the hybrid side of a Les Latneuses too.

If I had to put money on it, I'd guess the second one is a Les Latneuses.

ahh thanks Michiel. here is a picture of the brown coti from the side. its like a natural combo im not sure but you can clearly see there is 2 diffrent colors, one light and one darker. the darker side is the one with light black spots everywhere and the light side is the one with the red/brownish grains. is it possible it cound be a dressante/latneuses natural combo? im not schooled in coticules :P

Thanks
Magnus

That is sadly impossible to say. Could be a number of mines.

Interesting, I've had several Les Lat and La Verte Cotis, none of them looked anything like those 2 stones.
