    Did I find an emerald and an old arrowhead?

    I live in Western North Carolina and the wife an I decided to check out our creek and I found these two things and was wondering if they are an actual emerald and arrowhead. The one I think is emerald is very grass stain green colored in the center. What do you think?

    I went to Hiddenite, Sprucepine last year and have a rock that looks the same as your 1st pic. The places (tourist spots) said they were emerald. Wish I would have known about rock hounding during my days at Ft. Bragg, you sure live in a nice state

    Scotter, I wish I had a metal detector when I was at Bragg. Mike do you live in Georga? You might have a Georgia tecktite!

    I think the one on the right is a worked piece, might be a scraper or a arrowhead missing the tip.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    To blurry pics to say.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Those last pics look like chert (or flint).

    Yes it is a artifact. Been worked on both sides so it is a Biface. You should post it in the NA artifact page.
