What have I here?
« on: January 29, 2018, 05:36:12 PM »

This was found in Amity, AR.
It seems to be opaque. It definitely has facets. I assume it is some sort of quartz.

It looks like the base of a quartz crystal.

If it is harder, I agree that quartz is possible. Not enough faces of the crystal showing to take a good guess, but from that area barite, siderite and stibiconite are also possibilities.

surplus odds and ends that I have on
· Xtra gemstones
· Xcess fossils, minerals and rough
· Everything else

It looks like it could be quartz with iron (aka hematite) inclusions. My second guess would be orange calcite.
