In like flint?


Recommended Posts

I forgot about this rock I found on my property. I'm feel sure it don't belong here. It weighs about 40 pounds using my calibrated arms. :D My first guess is flint but not sure. What do you think it is?

Yep, it looks like it could be flint, or chert, or maybe even marble. Try an strike it with another peice of granite see if it sparks, flint or chert will spark, marble wont.

RH,

Wish I had another piece to spark it with. Guess I could break off a chunk. Thank's!

nug,

The only other thing I could add to the description, if the rock is in the right position in relationship to the sun, it is translucent.
