    These are from my field stone chimney. There is at least 20 different stones, all from my property.

    The middle photos are the classic “pudding stones” that are favored by collectors. See the map below for the general area of where they originated (they are from the Lorrain Quartzite of the Huronion Supergroup, paleoproterozoic in age). Not sure of the origin of the other two, best bet is that they are Canadian glacial imports too.

    I looked up Pudding Stone in my dictionary of geologic terms...it said "see conglomerate"
