    New here. Need help with rock identification.

    Hi everyone. I found this rock in an area in north iowa corn field along with about 50 lbs of geodes. I don't have a size comparison pic. Its about an inch and half squared in size. I did grind one side flat to see whats inside. Silverish with little to no grain. I thouht for a while that it is a hemitite but after being at the smithsonian yesterday im really not sure anymore. If needed i have more pics. Thanks in advance for any help.

    It does look like botryoidal hematite.
