    Hey Eman. This one is milky quartz., as New Englanders. 50 percent of our finds are quartz by default ...I agree with Charlie .. just saying...I think Hoss would agree too

    Chalcedony is the one I was thinking of never can spell it correctly

    Well basically the size of the crystalline structure and the amount of other mineral impurities in the material determine the name. All chert, chalcedony, agate, jasper, and flint are actually types of crystal. High silica in the material will give it a smooth “waxy” texture. The red color is almost always an iron impurity. Very awesome artifact regardless of what ya want to call it!

    Chalcedony I believe is the lithic you're referring too..could be? I bought all 3 cells from this collection..the third one is due in the mail tomorrow the one is definitely chalcedony

    There is a white stone that I can’t spell that they liked to flake into tools and points. The name starts with a Ch . I find it also has a slick to greasy feel to it but looks almost like quartz. Maybe someone else can spell it for you. I don’t find it often but it’s a nice material.
