Hey rock lovers. I've had this rock for about 12 years or so. I found it on a bank while deep in the woods fishing. I brought it home and it's been on my shelf since.

*Description of rock:
The rock looks to have square pieces of silver in it, but when I take one off with a pair of tweezers, it is transparent---sort of looks like clear plastic. It appears to bend but will break at a certain point. Whatever it is, it's very shiny and silver-looking before taking a piece off. On the back of the rock it appears the silver-looking stuff is bent. On the front, it looks like sheets od paper, except thinner than that. There's definitely many layers of it stack on top of each other.

I would appreciate if someone could explain to me what I have here. Thanks in advance


This is the other side of it.

Good god it's a perfect likeness of my ex wife. Scary to be sure. If you see her in person, RUN

mica might be the scientific name given to what is shown but what it is really is basically wax.

It seems mica is right. I always called it feldspar. Learn something new everyday.
