I would like help to identify this Stone. I have found a large amount of these stones in my yard. I would just like to know if they are worth anything or if I'm just going to have a pretty drivewayenter image description hereenter image description here

My location is Woodstock New Brunswick. I've actually found out what this stone is. It is slag glass from an iron smelt

It's Flint, almost certainly, it may be Obsidian, or some form of Chalcedony such as an Agate, but first and foremost I'm going with Flint. The colour and fracture look more like flint than obsidian to me.

    $\begingroup$ I would agree with Ash. I have seen many stones similar in Nevada near Tonopah. To me Chert, Flint, Agate, Chalcedony are really the same micro crystalline quartz with different amounts and types of impurities and perhaps slightly different formation conditions. $\endgroup$ – Friddy Jun 28 '18 at 22:22

  • $\begingroup$ @Brian Wow random, I have a piece of flint that looks just like it but pinkish, glad you found out what you've got though. $\endgroup$ – Ash Aug 22 '18 at 10:37
  • $\begingroup$ Me too there was a lot of work put into finding out what it was $\endgroup$ – Brian Sep 3 '18 at 17:07
