Hi everyone - is this a large chunk of chert? Outside natural surface has orange and worn smooth - found in coastal Brunswick County NC. Possibly large cleaves for tooling? Might post in artifact forum based on response.

Thank you!

I’m no authority but I don’t really see anything that causes me to think artifact. Hopefully you will get input from other members.

Doesn't look like chert and definitely not an artifact. Not sure what type of rock it is but I've found some in central Georgia.
Thanks my main question was to it’s composition and if it was chert/flint so I appreciate your response on that - I also don’t think it’s an artifact. It’s fine almost quartz-like appearance had me wondering what the rock actually was made of.

Its most probably Chert. Don't bother with the artifact forum for this piece in my opinion.
