What makes a rock look glassy?
« on: 19/12/2013 21:55:45 »



There's a big rock made of this stuff and I just wanted to know what it was? It's main characteristic is dark green/chrome like glass with a hardness of 7-8+. It's slightly magnetic and has 1-2 other kinds of rocks/minerals mixed in it? I've check a multitude of I.d charts and can't find anything on my own so I figured I would ask the experts ;D

Do I get extra points for spotting what looks like signs of onychophagia ?
