    I personally don't like using obsidian for flint and steel because it loses its edge very quickly and you will get glass shards in your fingers, I promise.

    Darn, having never tried it, I didn’t know. That makes sense though, it is essentially glass.

    This appears to be a fragment of Joe Dirt's "lucky meteorite". 26804_ak.jpg

    First mine I worked at... they had another term for the fancy mineral specimens they carried out. They traded them for ‘favors’, hence the name they used. Related to the above post.

    Then, of course there is always leaverite.

    So after reading and I found so stocks I think I can bust it up. Anyone need a small box full of front size pieces? If there’s more than just 3 guys wanting a box I’ll do it but not just for 3 people!

    It is the illusive “Unobtanium”. Or maybe Chinesium. Nope, prolly obsidian.

    hello,
    WOW :cool: nice chunk of Obsidian you have there @AngryDaddyBird I haven't come across any raw black obsidian in a while, mostly small tumbled & polished rocks, & these do come at a price. Don't bash it with rocks, as you may end up with a mush of shattered obsidian. I noted a few cracks in the obsidian, maybe worth taking a hammer & chisel or pointed implement & working the cracks open, hopefully some nice shards rather than shrapnel. Obsidian does shew sparks using a steel striker. I have tried & tested on both green & blue finds of long ago, & black nodules which were tumbled & polished from recent trades. :)
    Regards
    David

    It may be best to sell it on ebay or somewhere like that. I agree, it is probably more valuable as a big chunk, to the right person, than risking breaking it up and then trying to sell the pieces.

    hello,
    don't send it, sell it on eBay (whole) or if you do break it up, trade/sell it, make a few Buck $1.00c build on your girls Bushcraft kit, it don't come cheap as you know. :D

    Ok this is officially withdrawn until I figure out what to do with it? Maybe one of you might just get lucky with a big rock in your doorstep!
