    Green Quartz? Anyone know what this is?

    I found this on a hike in far West Colorado around 8,000 ft elevation. I've hiked these mountains for years and never found a rock like this.

    Just wondering if anyone might know what it is.

    Thank you!!

    I don't know my CO rocks but that has a waxy look like jade. Just a wild guess. Gary

    Thanks Gary!

    I am new here - this forum is awesome! I've been collecting rocks since I could hold one.

    It's heavy and the size of a baseball. Apreciate any info anyone can share!

    Actually, it's Rocky Mtn. petrified potato; definitely very rare in most places.

    I can't rule out jade but I'm seeing Chalcedony-Agate. I think the mohs of these is 6.5 so its quite hard and will fracture with a 'seashell-esque' pattern.
