Recommended Posts

I found it in a creek called devils run that's below an old iron ore mine of the same name it weighs five pounds and is about a foot long and 8 inches wide

I see some limonite, some botryoidal hematite and perhaps goethite. All are iron minerals. I'm sure others will chime in.

At first glance I thought it was a chunk of bog iron, but looking close I don’t think it is. I think morlock nailed it.
