Unusual rock found while digging

Reply Thu 2 Jun, 2016 09:22 am
I was digging around in my backyard this morning when I cam across this rock I can't quite put my finger. I live in the midwest and we have every kind of rock, but for me this is a head scratcher. The rock itself has faint magnetic properties. Clearly there are fossils, but I also see black nodules I would normally associated with volcanic rock. You can't see it in the pictures, but the surface contains very small pieces of silica. But it is an extremely small amount. There is one feature so small I was only able to see it under magnification. there is one tine piece of jade colored something. At first I thought it was contamination, but after lightly chiseling away at it, it is clearly part of the rock. I then attempted to split the rock. It is hard enough that I dis more damaged to the chisel the the rock. I took the hammer straight to it. I was really surprised when it took several hard blows before it broke in three pieces.

How to add an image to A2K in 6 painfully easy steps:

1. Navagate to "imgur.com." You can type those words in the browser address area each time, or perhaps if you're feeling adventurous, save it as a bookmark/favorite.

2. Click on "Computer" in the "Upload images" section on the page. You might have to look for this, but it's sorta toward the upper right of the page.

3. Navigate to your image on your computer. (Pretend you are going to email it to a friend.)

4. Click "Start Upload".

(Seconds later .... Voila ... your image is now hosted on the Internet!)

5. Copy the link to the image, which is found to the right of the displayed image. (I use the "BBCode" link, and just paste that directly into my A2K post -- it adds the IMG codes so I don't have to. Otherwise you can use the "Direct Link" and add those codes yourself.)

6. Paste the link into your A2K post (using the IMG codes if using the "Direct Link" method, or without using the IMG codes if using the "BBCode" method.)

(Voila again ... you have just added a link of your image to your post. Always preview to make sure it worked properly.)

Note: The IMG codes should like something like this, as they surround the link to your image in your post:

facebook is also a good hosting site...
