I know absolutely nothing about this subject.
Why are these rocks special?

When stable, I know they make knife handles out of em...I got a small
mining cart outside by the patio, and I put them in there for their color.
kinda like a cousin of turquoise the way they look, and from my take,
anything that gives ya a smile is a good thing

(Not my picture) Nice find! What strikes me is the pics that you posted remind me of Jade in the raw. Out here is the Mother Lode we have lower quality Jade thats found with Serpentine and Green Stone. Wished I new more about gem stones, but then again I have enough hobbies that I can't afford. :mrgreen:

Well, back in Michigan for my last summer here, getting the house ready to
list and move west for good. Figured I would post the last of 4 nuggets I found
in one area...cannot wait to wrap stuff up back east here and head west..that spot
might end up giving up some more nuggets after the monsoon rains come this summer.
No feeling on earth I ever had when you dig up a piece of gold 1000's of years
old that never saw the light of day or touched by human hands !!!
