    Found some blue stones in North Alabama..are they Turquiose??

    I have found several of these small blue stones while arrowhead hunting, in 3 different locations. I am just wondering if it is turquoise, or something else? I tried to do some research and learned that Turquoise is found in Alabama, but nothing specific

    Could you break a small one open using a hammer?
    Don't forget eye protection!

    If slag it would probably have a glassy look on a freshly exposed surface.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    I can't tell from the picture, but some of them really do look like turquoise, so I'd put down that hammer, just in case!!! Here's a link to your local gem and mineral society - they meet the 4th Monday - next week! and their contact numbers.

    If you go, you may want to take some of your points as well, see if some of them share your interest. Let us know what they say if you decide to go this route!!

    What ever they are, they are pretty shades of blue.

    I am aware of several area in and around PA that have what's called "Chalk Turquoise" and just be picked up as you've done here.. So if the stones have a chalky feel or look to them.. Thats prob what it is..

    They don't look chalky... Looks more tumbled
