Help IDing rock/mineral please
« on: 31/03/2014 00:05:10 »
My friend went hiking awhile ago and found this rock and gave it to me.  Never seen a rock like this - so im interested in knowing what it is if anyone can help!

Its very smooth, seems light, only about 2inx1in.  Its a like a burnt orange color all over...

Thanks everyone!

looks like flint to me, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Is it translucent?  I.E.  you can see light through it?

I'd call it an agate.
