It looks like a piece of obsidian to me. SOme forms of obsidion can contain small amounts of iron which would explain the magnet sticking

Looks like the type of thing I find along Lake Superior shorelines near Paradise in the Upper Peninsula. Does the black take a polish?

Beautiful. What type is it?

I check in every day. I don't comment if I haven't got an answer. I have more questions than answers anyhow. You are not the only one who has asked this question. CRH is a very quiet site but I have come to recognize it as that. I would like peop...

Is it metallic? It looks coppery, though that may be the light. I am always looking for meteorite because it is the most random "stone" ever! Nice whatever-it-is.

Hey Andrew...I would not even call myself "amateur", I just like rocks of all types and find even some lowly samples have interesting qualities about them. Most of the stones and rocks in my photo albums are found locally, except for the dinosaur ...

Good Day Fellow Rockhounds I am in the process of doing market research to show there is a market wanting the product I design and fabricate. Most everyone wears or owns some type of personal adornment. I look to make my jewellery unique. I love b...

Thanks for responding.

Hematite in Jasper/Agate is a common find near Paradise. I'd guess that's what you've found here.

I've done a bit of jewelry making but did that while in school in New Mexico. It's been awhile. But I hope to get some time in a local studio this winter.

Let's stay in touch.

The iron traces might or might not rust. Two things make me think obsidian - the way it shears in the photo and the trapped gas bubbles from the melted state.

Glad you liked it. The tricky bit was figuring out the angles to cut the glass for the triangular pyramids

Thanks for the welcome Inga. Love your "stuff". Fabulous artisan. Your photography is great too. Just found this site yesterday and am really enjoying the resources.

Hi Inga
I was hoping you could guide me to some bead stores in Toronto. I do not sell my things yet but am working on my business license. Until then I am unable to go to wholesale places.
Also at a bbq we went to resently a teacher placed a glassy stone in front of me and asked if I could identify it? I must say I was stumped at first! He told me it was from one of his students who found it locally (which confused me even more until he mentioned all the storm we had been having lately). Yes it was glass from a lightning strike in the sand. really cool!!!!
Have a great week
Your new friend
Shirley Moreau

P.S. I'll keep my eyes open for heart shaped stones for you! (or I could just cut you one,LOL)

Hi again Inga, About epidote - it is a common mineral that replaces almost any other mineral. It sometimes occurs in veins, sometimes replaces an entire rock and sometimes just replaces select minerals in a rock. I have an excellent photo of a granite in a ring that someone made many years ago. All of the dark minerals were replaced by epidote.
