  1. This is aimed specifically at you Bob F this forum, everyone on here that's below that petty content score line seems fine. It's when I see posts from people like you and others like morlock and d day crapping on a person reaching out for help. I post on here because I like sharing my finds. I already did the dang streak test, did you read? Also did a specific gravity test, multiple samples, 2.86. not hematite or magnetite. I'm not posting here anymore, it's filled with jackasses that seem to think their opinion is the best you will get, then when you argue with evidence that proves otherwise, you get a "well it's whatever you want it to be buddy!" Your posts are borderline masochistic, you belittle the people in them while at the same time call them friend, like you are trying to help. Nobody here is a professional, stop acting like it.
  2. Well when I searched images of titanium ore, I found this https://m.alibaba.com/product/108573312/Titanium-Ore-From-Mexico.html I did not realize at the time this was Alibaba, until I looked for it again just now. I see now looking at other images that titanium is more of a shiny metal in ore. I still don't know what it is
  3. Found an iron ore chunk the other day, it's different from other iron ore chunks that I have found. The metal on the interior is in shades of blue mixed with the iron around it. It streaks red-brown and is magnetic. It seems to have higher magnetism the more blue areas it has.
  4. Thank you, for a second I thought I was going color blind. This stone is cleaned, I scrubbed the dirt off with tooth brush and vinegar. Then cleaned it with soap and warm water right after. The shell is melted at a majority of half the stone, very smooth with a few divots. The shell is barely as thick as my fingernail. The other side has the shell still, but it's too damaged by years of being in a field that is plowed annually. I originally thought the black was magnetite as well, but the streak test of a sample leaves nothing behind.
  5. Just curious, but where do you see pink or green in this stone? This stone is brown and black.
  6. I'm going to post this boulder on this sub forum for now until I know for sure what it is. This was pulled out of my field years ago by my grandparents. It sat in a rock garden for years until this summer when I remade it. This was originally covered with mud from sitting so long, it was nearly buried until I dug it out. I cleaned it up after realizing it has a melted crust. This stone has its own pole when I take a compass to it. It leaves no streak with a sample I took off. Weighs about 130 pounds. Specific gravity of shell/crust sample is 2.77-3, adjusted for slight errors. The shell is very smooth in parts, and is fragile. Any idea on what this mass is?
  7. That seems like a match, thanks man!
  8. This stone is translucent, I can see my fingers on the other side of my slice, not just the shadow but skin color as well. You looked at the close up photos right? I shined a light under it. I'm leaning towards agate as well, but I thought agates have bands.
  9. This doesn't seem like granite to me, the round spots aren't separate pieces they are a coloration or maybe some sort of mineral stain? Here is a slice with a 60x close up from my jewlers loupe.
  10. Slightly, but I still kind of wanted real help with figuring it out.
  11. ...was that an attempt at a joke?
  12. I am reposting this stone I found in the field a while ago that is still yet to be identified. Green round spots are all over the interior, with red round spots near the surface. No streak, guessing it's a type of quartz. When rubbed with mineral oil, the green spots closest to the surface leak? They seem to stain the paper towel green. Will update with pictures of a slice with light under it.
  13. Because they are both ID sections, why start arguments on others threads?
  14. It does not flake or chip off when I use a thumb tack, sorry for the bad close up of the metal flake, my led on the Jewelers loupe makes a bright glare on pictures.
  15. Haha yeah I can't go 20ft into one of the fields without finding some piece of fossilized stone. Michigan is full of fossils. In the recent past, a couple years ago I think, they found mammoth fossils in a field near where I live
