If you are looking for some high quality obsidian, take a look at this ebay store: Lapidary Stone Supply

I bought these gold sheen and mahogany silver sheen obsidian rocks for 5$ Great stuff, shipped in 2-3 days. They've got a good selection of unique varieties, you can fill a USPS Flat rate box full with whatever varieties and sizes of the obsidian you would like for under 20$.

Where did you get the picture of quartzite in Wisconsin? I live in Wisconsin and have been looking for a good source of knappable matieral. I know that this was posted a few years back but do you remember where you found it?
