I believe what I have here is a pictish pebble made from quartz. There have been 19 similar stones found in the last 90 years and I believe all of them have been found in Europe. This one was found last year in the northeast United States. The picture with the multiple stones is from Painted Pebbles\Wikipedia. What are you thoughts?

I don't see what you are seeing....how is it the same as the identified ones you posted and why would it be in NA? Picts were in pre-Scotland, Scotland....

The rare and valuable ones will have native gold in them. Be careful of those. They can eat your ears off.

I'm pretty sure it's natural, too, but go ahead and post it in the Rocks/Gems forum - just keep scrolling down, you'll find it - there you will find someone to be more technical.

Meanwhile, keep lookin' down!! :icon_thumleft:
