Default Did Indians use this type black rock?

Can someone post a pic for me? Found these black rocks on a hill and they don’t belong in this area.

Tried texting the pic to myself to downsize but it’s not working.

Doesn't look like it to me. Find another rock and strike the rock on the left and on the edge. That will let you know for sure.

Those look water worn. Most likely spent some time in a river or stream. Hence, the smooth rounding edges like river rocks have.

X2. Doesn’t look like it will “flake” off like flint/chert rocks will, but still could have been put to other uses by those early, early Texans.

When I hit them against each other the larger one flaked off leaving sharp edges.

I’ll have to wait another day to scout that hill out some more.

That’s the kind of rock they threw at the dog when he chewed up his favorite pair of moccasins.

When they ran out of arrows they could have chunked those rocks at something. Fjb
