Re: Re: Help me indentify rock?
Cool. I posted my pics on another board and the most popular oppinions seem to be Slag followed by Obsidian. I am not looking to sell it. I was thinking of trying to make something pretty (or several somethings) out of it. Everyone says chip, cut, or break a piece off. However, I am a newbie at this and don't want to screw it up, no matter what it is. Any pointers on how to safely do this? I do have a couple Dremels. I have some carbide cutting wheels as well as some Diamond grinding/drilling bits. Wouldn't these be safer than a simple hammer and chisel? Oh, I also have a rock hammer.
I opened some of the pics and drew some lines around areas of interest. #1 is an area that looks like vegitation of some sort. Area #2 looks like a Crystal that formed on top of the piece. Could Slag have that? I also found some pics of Obsidian that look interesting. See links below. Also, I don't have a local rock shop to take it to here either.
While looking I found a piece of Rainbow Obsidian here.
Some interesting pics of it here:
