    If you can shave off a bit with a file then see if it burns you'll know if it's coal.

    Not sure either of the two identifications offered are native to the Gastonia area. Obsidian is more like glass and comes from a volcano.

    obsidian = Concoidal fracture; used primarily in the production of native American artifacts (arrowheads, knives, etc.)

    Thanks everyone!!! Thanks Mr. Phillips!

    Actually, I got it from a Korean lady. She said it was onyx, so she may have brought it from there. She knows I metal detect, and wanted me to have it.

    Tks for all the help

    Metal Detecting
    Appears to be obsidian from the fractures, luster and colorization. As said its primarily been used to make stone tools but some material makes good jewelry.
    Everyone Believes they have gold buried in the back yard... small wonder so few ever look for it.
