Location Type: Public Access
Details: I've heard from many that you can find mozarkite easily around Lincoln, MO in ditches and roadcuts and on boulders. You can bring the typical roadcut tools like rockhammers and heavier hammers and picks (with safety glasses and gloves).
Mozarkite is a variety of chert nicknamed for Missouri and Ozarks where it is found. It usually has some pink and polishes well. It is also the Missouri state gemstone.
Directions: I don't have a specific location, but just in general the Lincoln-area. Here is what someone said on the Travel Channel Treasure Wiki website: "The chert is found in streams, ditches, fields, and road cuts around a wide area around Lincoln, Missouri. The area extends along the Cotter Dolomite Formation of Ordovician age. The word is a combination of Mo for Missouri, Ozark for the region and ite for rock. Lincoln is south of Sedalie on HWY 65. I have also found Mozarkite at Harry Truman lake west of Lincoln."

I am looking for some help identifying this rock.

I don't know what it is, if it is a natural heart shape, or if it is man-made.

Looking for opinions, and can send more pics.  Thanks.
