    Can't tell much of anything. Limonite, hematite or a mixture? Perhaps even a rock made of several minerals?
    You really need to get more persuasive with the hammer to get a better guess. See if a knife will scratch it.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    It would make a nice cabochon for sure. Possibly silica based. Will a knife scratch it?
    Could also be a fancy schist of some sort.

    Hi, we found this one on our ranch in South Texas. Its very heavy and approximately the size of a small watermelon. Can you please let me know what it is? Been searching online but can't seem to find anything close. Thank you!

    Mostly chalcedony, some amethyst.

    The metallic looking thing; will a knife scratch it? Streak test, what color to you get?

    Magnetic suggests magnetite. Do streak test, should result in a blackish streak if memory serves.

    Cool rock. Get some pics of it dry, it's looking wet here. It hides the natural luster.

    When I scratched it with a knife it fell apart. Very brittle and light. When I turned the larger one over and scratched the grey area, What felt like ash came out.Click image for larger version.
