    Magnetite?

    Found in E.TN. I think they are both magnetite due to very strong magnetism.

    This one is a little fuzzy
    keep your eyes on the ground and pray you don't run into anything. I'm no expert nor do I claim to be. Just try to help out with what little I do know.

    Most likely then, yeah. Check streak to be sure.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    The brown one streaks brown but the black leaves nothing. I did a bit of research of the area I was in and turns out they mined around the whole place I was at for magnetite back in the late 1800 early 1900. I also found some Epidote and and that turned out being Calcite/Pyrite/Hedenbergite.
