    I don't know, if it flexible/malleable? Has the look of a very corroded piece of copper as a first impression.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Hi Eu, no it is rock. & the circles are smooth definitely in it, not on it. am hoping to find bigger chunk of it, though I don't believe the material came from this area, so I might have been lucky to have found the flake.
    thanks guys for your response

    İf you can not scratch it with a knife, hardnes is 7 or higer, it is a honeycomb chalcedony.
