Hey, this is my second post so hopefully the pics show up etc. peace.


I found this rock awhile ago behind my home, it kind of called to me the way metal objects do but is not magnetic. I also find it extremely easy to focus with...maybe the crystals...I don't know.

The green color is the natural stone and has the weight and consistency of granit, with Many red rimmed quartz (a Guess) Crystal bits.

My first guess is adventurtine. My spelling may be off.

Can any one please tell me more definitively or a better guess than mine of what it really is?

Thanks and cheers!

Im not sure what it is but it kinda reminds me of stones I've found around rivers. Perhaps some kind of sedimentary stone?

Hard to tell because the pics are a bit fuzzy scaled up, but if that is a crystal structure on the inside, it might be a small geode.

It's not a geode, I'm pretty certain, it's mega hard and solid, I did polish it, before that it was rough and did not resemble a polished river stone ...sorry should have mentioned that in the first post.

When I've encountered geodes before they were lighter than they looked etc...this is heavy and more than it looks.

Wish the pics were better but it's an iPad mini lol.

I'll try for a closer clearer one.

Cheers!

It looks like a conglomerate.

Snakeskin agate may be?



That one is tumbled (polished) but it looks like a snakeskin to me

I think you hit it.

Looks like a couple of different stone types there. I see some jasper, and quartz for sure, not sure on the dark color stone. Could be granite, but more likely something else. Was this found in or around one of the great lakes?

That's really close looking, nice find.

I'm not sure how common that is here, I'm in eastern North America near the ocean.

I have never seen such a stone around here before, I'm going to definitely look that one up.

Thanks, cheers

Nova Scotia but inland some in the apple growing capital of the world lol!!

We don't see green stones here much at all, it's uncommon enough that most folks will pick them up if interesting enough.

I do have a small tributary to a major river near behind my place and an old rail track ..really old like first in Canada and all that(now a trail system), but this was not found near enough to any of that unless some one else carried it along for a bit.

Cheers!

It looks like it could be a thunder egg.



This is one cut in half.

The reason that I ask is because when I was younger I remember seeing stones very similar to that along the shoreline of Lake Superior. They are cool looking for sure and worth holding onto if anything just for a neat conversation piece.

Wow that's beautiful! I hope that is one of those.

I'm somewhat sensitive to old things, rock is no exception and there is certainly something up with this stone...at least personally and around the house.

I got a little piece of meteor from up up north off my father, not the same at all ...polar opposites(another happy weirdness).

Cheers!

I'm going to hold onto it it for a bit I think.

I am thinking about carving it, so some thought is in motion so to speak.

Much peace

I'm guessing the white bits are calcite & not crystal, unsure about the green bits tho?

After looking it up, you could be right.

I always figured it was opaque and white, I can't honestly tell the difference to coloured quartz.

Really neat, I'm learning something new. Thanks

Cheers

It looks like an Agate to me.
Possibly a Lake Superior..

It looks like an unprocessed gold nugget to me...gold turns the stone green!

Surely there is a gem & mineral club somewhere near you? Those guys would know, plus rockhounding is a great hobby!
