  • Beautiful banded chert from cobble.

    Just wanted to show this beautifully banded piece from a creek cobble. Found here in Scott county Missouri.

    Looks like Jefferson City Chert with a creek stain.

          There's another chert from the same area as Jefferson City, but lacks the colors of reds, and yellow, called Mozarkite. It looks like banded agate that's found in layers and in geodes.

            Yep, I imagine I could never find "enough already" points made from that material...

                I feel like it's closer to crab orchard chert. The cobble likely came from the Everton or St.Peter's formations and I lean toward the st.peters judging by the cortex and that it formed as a cobble.
