So, I was out hunting arrowheads and ran across this funny looking rock.At first I thought it was a piece of glass but it seems to be made into the rock…

Do a search on green quartz crystals and go to images. Most of the results are links to its "healing power" and and places to purchase them. It could be worth more than just a very nice find. Very cool rock! It pays to keep your eyes open.

If you’re anywhere close to a University go see the Geology Department. Excellent free information.

I'm thinking Emerald.
Numerous ice ages have ground across the continent. Dragging materials from Canada south. Here along the shore of lake Erie in Ohio. All the way south of Columbus. Is mostly all glacial till and meridian material brought down from Canada. I believe that could be from Canada.

The metal looking rock around the beautiful green crystal could be chromium. A typical dopant that creates emerald in quartz matrix.
I truly hope you've found something truly special.
Don't break it up. So much more valuable in matrix.
I think you've found something really special.
Go back and look for it's Friends ...

Hardness Test can help -
The hardness of a mineral is determined by scratching the mineral with a material of known hardness.
The materials that Geologist’s use to test mineral hardness are a set of minerals of known hardness called the Mohs Hardness Scale.
There are ten minerals in the Mohs Hardness scale assigned numbers from 1 to 10, where 1 is the softest mineral possible and 10 is the hardest known mineral.
The ten minerals and their hardness numbers are listed below:
1 talc
2 gypsum
3 calcite
4 fluorite
5 apatite 6 orthoclase (a common form of potassium feldspar)
6.5 Glass
7 quartz
8 topaz
9 corundum
10 diamond.

Looking at it closer it appear to have 6 sides or hexagonal. Half of it imbedded in the host rock. R2-D2
Typical of calcite or quartz.
Both stones are most likely the same material.

I’m thinking maybe this was a trade item. I can’t say where for obvious reasons, but I have found lots of Indian relics in this area.
