Peacock Quartz?

Many moons ago while driving up Hiway 1 on the north coast of California, my wife picked up this big green rock. Well, curiosity got the better of me so I busted it open, much to my chagrin.

I walked by it the other day and decided to put my loupe to it,

GOLD!

Just get a nail and lay it on suspect and tap good with a hammer and all is answered instantly, as ifn' it cracks,crumbles or goes crunch the rock is leaverite as in leave it right there as copper ore?-John

Amen Jack ,

there are more things beautiful than just gold. Minerals and gemstones make great displays... and there's even a following for Hematite ... it's in the eye of the beholder.
