    HELLO my son found these rocks while digging in the back yard. So we are using this as a scool vacation lession.We found this site and we are asking for help. One is small is bleck small and shiny. I say plastic. But you know how 10 year olds can be. The other is sharp white and some clear. It almost looks likes glass that was heated. He thinks its a diamond. So what do we do now?

    Hve there ever been campfires or other fires in the area where the specimens were dug up? Check out the information on diamond clevage. My first though is melted glass for the larger specimen, and either glass or plastic for the smaller.
