I found these rocks in my yard. Upon closer investigation of where these came from in my yard I found they are mixed with gravel that was laid prior to the black top in my driveway. I have found more near the mail box out front too. I talked to the construction manager who built the sub division we are in. He told me in the several years long project he did not recall any workers finding any artifacts. He told me that gravel was brought in and dumped strategically around the site in piles and used as needed for compaction under all of the mailboxes which are brick 2' x 2' wide x4' tall. It is crushed gravel and under all the driveways too. Under every slab that each house was built on. I estimate there are maybe 150 ranch and raised ranch homes in the subdivision. This gravel is absolutely everywhere. I doubt I will try and knapp any but have a look at this piece I found today. It appears to be rhyolite to me or some other volcanic tuff. The lighter colored piece is heavily patinated. There is a tiny chip out of it that shows a very dark grey underneath. The oval piece actually looks to have platforms set up around the wider part of each perimeter. Triple A battery inserted for scale.
No announcement yet.
Can you be fooled?
