Flint With Quartz?


Recommended Posts

Found this today by my shops parking lot, I believe it is flint , I admit however that I am not very familiar with minerals... the specimen is about one inch and not quite as dark as the photo shows. the small cavity contains small crystals I believe to be quartz.. thoughts? I appreciate any input.





If you show them a transitional, they'll ask for two more. ;)

Based on your location, I'm guessing you are correct.......flint (or chert) with a small vug of quartz crystals. Frequently found combo of SiO2 forms in construction gravels.
