I found this rock on the ocean shore. Its really pretty! It has purple, blue and gold on it. And blue crystals inside of it.

Here is a few photos I took of it.

@LovelyPrincess,
Hard to identify because of the wave rounding. Very pretty though. What area of the world did you find it in?

It looks like it might have some pyrite in it.

@LovelyPrincess,
That is pretty. I'm mainly bumping your topic. This is a question for farmerman when he comes online.

@LovelyPrincess,
I believe its a glob of bitumen. Sometimes bitumen will collect at suboceanoic seeps and roll for centuries along a shallow shoreline where an long shore current just turns em into a cruller. What gave me a clue is the "cut mark" along the side of the chunk. A rock wouldnt leave a gut like that (except bitumen and certin coals). I dont believe its a coal because coal doesnt usually hve those kinds of inclusions.

If you can peel a teeny piece off and try to set it aflame on a dish, if it melts and begins to smoke or burn, its a bitumen sample.
Are you in the US? along the Calif or Gulf oats?

@farmerman,
Thank you for your reply Farmerman. I was the one who actually made that cut mark in the rock. I wanted to see what was in it. I will take a tiny piece off and test your theory out. And let you know the results. I'm in the US. I found this rock on the shore line of Rhode Island, NY.
Thank you,
Katie

@LovelyPrincess,
so its slightly soft enough for you to make that cut mark?
Do you mean Long Island NY?

@farmerman,
No, I was at Newport, Rhode Island. Easton's Beach. Yes, it was soft enough for me to make that mark. I will have to wait until tomorrow to test your theory out because I don't have a lighter or matches on me right now. Thank you Smile
