guess the rock!
    #15510622 - 12/13/11 03:18 PM (3 years, 6 days ago)

http://i'm starting this thread in spirit of the guess the plant thread, in hopes that it'll do as well and be as fun. if you guess correctly and get confirmation from the poster, you get to choose a rock to identify. you must guess the location the rock came from and the type of rock. please only post rocks with clues and details which make it identifiable, and know the origin. don't just post a simple ugly rock.

I suck at guessing the plant.  I'm probably even worse at guessing the rock.

Looks like quartz covered with some kind of iron ore.

nope, it has a name. it is a well known form of quartz though, and iron oxide does cause the red. it's a very famous and sought after material.

also, the red is not on the outside only. this picture is of a cut slab.

google is a good place to start. the very general term for this stone gets it's name from the drillo river in sicily, which in ancient times had a different name that sounds similar to the general term(not the name i'm looking for).

No, comedy relief.  There was no malice behind that post.

It's a rock. A red rock. It came from the ground.

River drillo used to be the Acate.  So maybe Agate.  I see some polished onyx that looks similar but the bands seem much too even.

carnelian?

Just a guess.

I'm learning as I go along.

Now I'm going to be stopping to look at every rock I see in addition to mushrooms and plants.
