It looks like a lumb of Coprolite, something stepped on. :D

Welcome! You might as well start at the bottom of the heap, nothing butt up from there.


Great, I'm trying to purchase gem testing hardware, now it looks like I need a bigger shovel :shock:

It may be I needing the bulldozers to dig out of the heap, your visual analysis is as good as all the others here.

Quick way to find out..... find some muriatic acid and see if it fizzes.


The OP (Wilhelm) was a drive-by. He hasn't returned to the forum since the original post date. I'll send him a courtesy email. :D

Any where that sells pool supplies will have Muriatic Acid, the last gallon I purchased at Home Depot.
