Could It Be Golden Herderite?
(Orange, Tx USA)
It is crazy that I have been finding these rare and high vibration stones around my land. Especially when they say they are from India and other countries far from Texas where I live. My question though is how to really know if it is a certain stone just by the looks of it? So many different variations of one stone identified as a certain one could look so many different ways.
My next question is about these stones I found around my home which are light to medium gray and to the unaided eye look just like plain old ugly gray rocks that one would cover holes up in a driveway. But I felt they where more than meets the eye.
The problem though is getting the many years of lime or clay or what some rockhounds call the outer matrix off. I refuse to use the chemical methods proposed by some online. However I did try using white vinegar and it worked, but only enough for me to see beautiful crystal pieces that were different shades. There is something amazing under there for I have seen the little piece on each one.
The problem is the stuff is so hard to get off, any thoughts on this or suggestions on this matter?
