My Husband found this rock in our yard and I am so curious to find out what it is... It has a decent amount of colors on it and I am curious why... overall it looks almost "glassy" but with the black and red/brown spots on it... also it has what i am assuming is maybe pyrite on it but I don't know for sure... Any help would be appreciated!!^_^ Thanks!!
We live in middle GA if that helps...

Looks like a weathered quartz vein.
Brown & dun spots are iron hydroxide stains and a bit of clay.
Have a nice day: Ag
