    Dark blackish blue transparent stone

    I found this while digging a creek bed in Central Kansas Today. There is no way it is obsidian or flint by its color and transparency but I'm not too sure what forms the cubical fracture patterns. When I first discovered these pieces it was a single pane of cubical glass like dark gray stone. it only became transparent and blueish at the second glance. Anyone with possibilities of what this may be?

    Perhaps Blue Fluorite in "cubic-crystalline" form.

    The photo below came from the "Fluorite Auctions" photos at the minerals.net Fluorite webpage:

    I'd vote for black Obsidian.

    I'm not sure, does it fracture conchoidal or curved on the edges? if so it may be Obsidian. Without better pics that is the best I can do.

    Honestly..no. Agree with GF450 that we need better pics to make
    any serious determination. I downloaded your pic and tried to improve
    it a bit, but struck out. A pic taken in natural daylight would be best.

    Looks like a piece of broken tempered glass to me. Regardless of the color.

    Broken tinted safety glass. Probably from a trailer or RV.

    The new photo shows the form isn't precisely cubic, but only roughly so. Therefore I withdraw my previous guess, and agree with fractured dark-blue tinted tempered glass, as Clay Diggins says.
