# Help to Identify a Rock Found in Gray Clay [closed]

Found digging a pond. The rock was inside Gray Clay 18 feet below grade. The person who gave it to me tried cutting it with a grinder. This left an area that looks like steel.

• "Central New York" covers a lot of territory. Could you give the name of a nearby town? "inside grey clay" sounds like it may have been part of a glacial deposit and that would make it even harder to guess. – verisimilidude Jul 15 at 1:49
• What's that incision? Is it from the grinder? – Jan Doggen Jul 15 at 7:15
• Math is my worst subject, so bare with me. I used 2 Liters of water, marked the level, then placed the Rock in water, marking the New Water level, that is now at 3 liters, from there i am lost on the math formula – GuardianV Jul 15 at 18:44
