Georgia Rocks - Black Soil

We recently purchased a home and land in Northeast Georgia, about 45 minutes outside of Atlanta and 15 minutes south of Dahlonega. The land is covered with rocks, mostly black rocks, but some kind of crystal and red looking ones too. Many very large and beautiful rocks. Instead of the normal red clay, we have black dirt that is as black as the potting soil you buy at the store. It is very unusual to find this kind of dirt in Georgia. In fact, there is red clay all the way up to our land, then it is black. Great dirt. Anyway, the rocks are very nice and lately we have had many comments on the possibilities of them containing minerals and gems. What could these rocks contain that makes the soil so black and soft?
