  1. The only location of turquoise in maricopa county that I know of is the sacred frog mine which is halfway between wickenburg and lake pleasant. On the other hand, chrysocolla is found in a number of locations in maricopa county, mostly to the west.
  2. A very famous person once stated..."If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with b.s. Kudos for trying.
  3. It's probably chrysocolla. I found a lot of it to the west of Wickenburg.
  4. Do a streak test. https://geology.com/minerals/streak-test.shtml Can use a file as well. Smear shavings onto a piece of white paper and note the color. If its magnetite, the powder will be dark gray to black.
  5. I think you have rusted iron pieces. Don't look like meteorites. Just scrap iron from many years ago.
  6. Did you do a streak test on it? Looks like magnetite which will give a grey streak.
  7. Most likely chrysocolla but could be turquoise also. If you can provide the general location, that would help.
  8. I like science fiction too. Thats why I read his posts on sedimentary meteorites.
  9. Where was this found? Desert, Urban area? How large is the area? Give more details.
  10. Another (more expensive) option are satellite phones like Iridium, Globalstar, etc. Can be anywhere without issues.
  11. I have never seen blue quartz before. Thanks for the pics.
  12. I should have said water worn volcanic basalt. Obviously it's been smoothed by erosion, most likely by water. Let us know what the geology teacher thinks.
  13. I'm not an expert either but I'm 95% sure it's basalt. It's definitely not a meteorite.
  14. At one time millions of years ago their may have been. Or it could have been glacial float from the north
