Ahh, here's a chance for me to use what I actually get paid for
(archaeology) instead of what I do for fun (astronomy).  I assume by
Folsom, you mean New Mexico?  Just going on your description, I would
guess that what you have is a piece of obsidian, volcanic glass.  Any way
you can scan a picture of your rck and put it on the web?  Anyone else
have any theories?
