    I found quite a bit of these rocks halfway between Las Vegas and Goodsprings, Nevada. Looks like pseudomorphed iron pyrite to me but I will yeild to the experts. I took one of the samples and polished the edge down for no real reason other than just to do it. Has a hardness similar to my 154CM pocket knife. Found tons of it in sheets in one particular spot not really known for anything other than silica & uranium.

    These rocks were found approx. 5 miles west of Goodsprings, Nevada just north of the Chaquita and Keystone Mines.

    Thank you for taking the time to help me out. It's late and I'm half awake so if I am missing details please let me know and thank you!
