    Any ideas about this beautiful chert?

    That is definitely jasper with a good patina! I have found a lot of jasper pieces that are identical in color down here in SE Arkansas. Beautiful material and is very smooth almost “waxy”

    I think theres another jasper source up there besides the Pa. Jasper.... Pleasant Valley I think it's called. Not 100% sure. Not well known.

    I have plenty of Carter Cave flint here...I mostly see it in lighter colors, but that wouldn't surprise me if it came from the Ohio river. Now that I think about it, Ohio river Carter Cave chert looks like that, so that's what it may be.

    Someone else just suggested to me it is Carter Cave Flint, from KY. After looking at a bunch of images of that type chert...it sure looks like it. Take a look at some ...

    and L- Man.....I had never heard about Jasper feeling 'greasy'.....but I will say it does feel very, very smooth.....Let me think on that a bit. I have a few Jasper pieces, I will have to feel and compare. Thanks for your interest everyone.
