    Found this cool rock gave it to my girlfriend a couple years ago. I figured that you guys might enjoy it.

    Think it's worth anything?

    Hello
    X marks the spot and yes that is a interesting rock sample as it is. You could have the rock scanned by a falcon type of metal detector along what appears to be calcite or quartz lines to see if there is any values. It is unusual sample of veins.

    Looks like a combination of selenite, the brown matrix, and calcite. Cool piece though
    Everyone Believes they have gold buried in the back yard... small wonder so few ever look for it.

    I'm glad you know quarts and don't take this wrong, but I think the word you want is quartz.

    Selenite is not brown.

    Looks like a contact with Granodiorite And Greenschist with a high Iron content
