Raw gem stone?

Recommended Posts

Out in my field today I found this curious looking stone glinting at me.  I thought it was just a chunk of quartz until I cleaned it up.  It has been hit by a plow chisel it looks like, and has exposed a part of the interior.  This is more glossy that the quartz I have run into, it is very smooth, and the chipped sections have a glass like reflective surface.  Is this something other than quartz?

Looks like tumbled quartz ,and the yellow ,  a citrine variant. 

Iron can stain in many colors.

Maybe natural water erosion then, I live in an area that was under water at one point.  Thank you
