    Hi Jozsef, it is difficult to decide what a piece is just with photo’s
    but if was to have a guess just on mainly the photo with the piece in your hand I think it could be either peacock obsidian or agate as per my attachment

    hope this helps

    I have been collecting data on this rock trying to ID it. The data that I have collected appears to be pointing to black beryl but I seriously doubt that it is beryl. The hardness is 7.5-8.0, specific gravity is 2.6, weighs 13.1 grams or 65 carats, luster is greasy and very reflective and it does have inclusions. The rock has not been polished, it has a natural shine to it. I had an edx analysis done but was told after the scan that their equipment could not detect something as light as beryllium.
    I have good evidence that the rocks in this area may have been involved in an impact event in the distant pass. I also have a stone in which the data is pointing towards a natural moissanite which I’m very doubtful of.
    Thank you,
    Ken

    Sorry about not being able to open the photos, I’m not sure but maybe the files were too large so I down sized them so lets see if this works.
    I downed sized the files to under 100 KB each and they still will not open so I’m not sure about what to do from here.

    Pictures can not be opened , open Microsoft Office Word – copy the picture in it, save it to the desktop and upload it there the word document. Then it will be ok. Hi
