    Default Chert or Novaculite.

    I have seen references made on other onsite sources classifying both Charnley Forest and Llyn Idwell Grecian Hones as Novaculite. imo both these stones would be better classified as a Chert.

    Chert vs Novaculite

    Any other members have an opinion on this subject.

    Also; with regards the most commonly used natural honing stones, past and present, has anyone put together a listing that places each of these stones within a known category. eg; Sandstone; Slate; Chert; or Novaculite.

    As an example; Arkansas, Washita, and possibly genuine Turkey Stone's would fall within the category of Novaculite.

    Iam right on the way to create this overview of sharpening stones, which is actually hard to get together...to amount of vintage and available stones is really big...
