Chert

Washington Township, Licking Co., Ohio, USA

Dimensions: 2.5" x 2"

Curious banded chert which resembles the banded Polish flint from Środborze. Most of the chert in this area is solid in color. Typically, whites and greys, reddish browns, and black are found. This specimen was collected from the Licking River behind the Velvet Ice Cream factory (I got a vanilla malt with extra malt). The location is a 30 minute drive from the more famous Flint Ridge area. As a river find, the specimen could have been washed down from somewhere upstream or it could be a glacial erratic. July 2010.

Coal (Var: Bituminous Coal)

Washington Township, Licking Co., Ohio, USA

Dimensions: 1.5 inches x 1 inches x 0.5 inches

Dimensions: 1.5" x 1" x .5"

Small slab of bituminous coal (while shiny it is quite soft, thus bituminous and not anthracite). A relatively thin seam of bituminous coal can be found in Licking County, Ohio. Not economically viable to mine. Collected from the Licking River behind the Velvet Ice Cream factory. The location is a 30 minute drive from the more famous Flint Ridge area. As a river find, the specimen could have been washed down from somewhere upstream. July 2010.

Goethite : α-Fe3+O(OH)

Washington Township, Licking Co., Ohio, USA

Dimensions: 1.5" wide

An ironstone concretion ("indian paintpot") with interior coral-like fossils.

The Licking River in Washington Twp, Licking County, Ohio is littered with ironstone concretions, varying in size from a pea to a watermelon. The predominant mineral is goethite. Some have fossils at the core, others seem to have formed around existing stones, and others have a soft powdery clay within which botryoidal forms grew.

Galena : PbS, Goethite : α-Fe3+O(OH)

Washington Township, Licking Co., Ohio, USA

Dimensions: largest specimen is 2.5" wide.

Three ironstone concretions with galena. Geologic sources for the county indicate galena is "rare" in these concretions. I might have guessed pyrite, but the geologists say it's galena. The galena forms a layer in the concretion in the large specimen, and blobs in the concretion in the other two.
