    Go buy about $40,000 worth of rock crushing equipment and a small trammel and you will end up with $40,000 worth of crushed rock...

    Looks like mica

    What do you think it is? We’re not geologists here. Just people who like shiny pieces of metal. :)

  • I am no expert but I do have a collection of worthless rocks I have picked up in my travels.

    It looks like your rocks have some quartz in them and maybe mica on the quartz which is pretty common. Mica is flaky and glittery. If you do a search for quartz with mica I think you will see some similar pieces.

    The best help I can give is to get a test kit with the 50 or so rock samples.
    Check the basics like color, striations, hardness,etc.

    Are you in a precious metals bearing district.
    Look for layers and being able to distinguish between what's good and what's going to be a waste of time is key....I'm not there yet.

    I have a rock story !

    Way back in school daze I convinced some dummy that granite was a precious stone :D

    I thought it was funny but he dug up a 100 pound granite rock from the woods and wheelbarrowed it 2 miles to his house and proudly showed his dad.

    Next day at recess he hit me with a baseball bat on my skull!

    I scored that one a draw at the time but in hindsight ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    That is common quartz and mica in the OP.... No precious metals there.... Cheers, RickO

    It took you 2 years to say thank you????

    Well, it is the weekend, so I imagine it is time for someone to try to stir things up.

    It's gold mixed with oil. You need to start drilling!
