  • What type of stone am I working with

    can anyone tell me what type of stone this is. I only find it at one very specific location on a beach here on Long Island. In its natural state it is very smooth and has a brownish color with specks of light material within. It is a hard material but I am able to work it into some beautiful objects using a Dremel with various grinding and diamond bits. While I am grinding the stone it has a grey appearance but after a lot of sanding and polishing it ends up looking like dark chocolate.

    Hey Kaz, Very nice work you have done. A friend made me a pendant that looks like that material. He called it Channel Coal.

    Thanks for your reply Ron. If you have a pic of your pendant I would like to see it. This is a pendant I made that is a miniature replica of a real pendant that I acquired from a friend. It was found on eastern Long Island many years ago.

        A friend asked me to make him a cross. I made it this morning and finished up polishing and drilling a hole a little while ago.

              I don’t know what channel or Cannel coal is, but is there any reason to suspect it’s something other than flint?

                As far as I know you can’t grind flint into shape

                    Love your work, especially the fish.

                    Whatever that material is, it's perfect for purpose.

                    Has it got some weight to it?

                      Yea definitely a solid hard stone with some weight. Takes me a few hrs to make something like this.
