    Question What stone / formation is this?

    Just found a few pieces in my backyard, Don't know where it came from. Haven't seen it in my life, especially anywhere close to my area.

    Looks like a lump of coal, give it a streak test and describe it.
    Everyone Believes they have gold buried in the back yard... small wonder so few ever look for it.

    Galena
    I'm beginning to realize I've gone through life without knowing what anything is ...

    It is hard to say from a picture but it does look like galena. I have chunks all over the yard.

    Hard to tell from the light in which the photo was taken but If it is heavy in weight Id say galena (lead ore) if light Id say most likely coal.
