Hi im from east tx i have had these rocks for a while now not sure exactly where they came from except im pretty sure they are from texas lol

image-940366621.jpg

First let me get this one out of the way it's like red clay but harder and it has little gold bits in it I don't think it's gold but it's just weird

Not sure if you can see the little glittery bits of stuff but it's all over it . In fact there are little bits of gold glittery stuff some in just one tiny spot on a bunch of these rock I have and it's not glitter lol it's in the rock

This one is still a bit dirty but those lines go all the way around it

I've got a whole lot more of different texture and some is think may be petrified
You cAn also look at my other post on my profile at those rocks too
I'm going to post a few at a time if you guys have any tips on how I can get a better pic or maybe something I should do different I'm a newbie and I'm open to any suggestions I appreciate it thank you all so much

As you've stated yourself.. this is a dense forum of clay (sort of glued together very similar to the making of clay pots) however, the shinny stuff your taking about (unless actually tested) could be gold.. but I feel its fools gold/mica/pyrite.. but then again.. if one was to enhance the images (zoom in on the subject) you may see small crystal nodules that could if viewed from the necked eye appear as gold/sliver/mica etc..

As for the second stone.. although it appears to be similar to that of a "lava stone" I can't place or name this sample.

and lastly.. Welcome to the forum beautiful.

Both rocks look sedimentary, without being able to make out details they resemble sandstone.
The cause for the "glittery" look is probably Mica.
