I have found several rocks from the Oatman, Arizona area. Oatman is in Northern Arizona only 15 or 20 miles from the Arizona, California and Nevada tri-border. Kingman, AZ. famous for it's Turquoise, is about 20 miles to the Southeast. So as not to cause confusion, I'll post each rock separately. If I could also have the scientific name for these rocks that would be terrific.

Please do some tests, such as hardness and streak, from this page

Yes, you will need to do some testing because this could be man-made (likely) or it could be a bunch of other things. The tests help narrow things down.
