{n} a very hard kind of stone, a cruel wretch
A city in Michigan
SiO Cryptocrystalline native silica Almost pure silica containing less than 5% impurity in the form of calcium carbonate In bodies it gives a whiteness, hardness and a resistance to crazing In glazes it provides extra silica when needed and is often used to balance the silica amount when adjustments are made for purposes of glaze fit

A dense form of silica in the shape of nodules of dark colors; used for early cutting tools
It is very hard, and strikes fire with steel
A variety of quartz composed of silica, it has excellent splitting tendencies and leaves sharp edges when broken
An opaque, glassy, silicate mineral found as pebbles and nodules in chalk and limestone More finely-grained than chert Flint fractures easily, producing sharp cutting edges making it suitable for the production of a wide range of tools and implements: arrow heads, axes, blades, burins, discoidal knives, scrapers Flint mines are found in most parts of the flint-bearing area which extends from the Wash to Dorset, and around the north and south banks at the mouth of the Humber There are other sources of flint in parts of northern Ireland, and around Aberdeen The process of working flint is known as flint-knapping
A dense, fine-grained, naturally occurring form of silica (Si02) that fractures conchoidally A variety of chert, the more technical term Most flint is gray, brown, black, or otherwise dark, but nodules and other chunks tend to weather white or change to lighter shades from the surface inward

A flint is a small piece of flint which can be struck with a piece of steel to produce sparks. A city of southeast-central Michigan north-northwest of Detroit. Founded on the site of a fur-trading post established in 1819, it became an automobile-manufacturing center in the early 1900s. Population: 140,761. City (pop., 2000: 124,943), eastern Michigan, U.S. Originally the site of a trading post, the city was laid out in 1836 and became a fur-trading and agricultural centre. Abundant supplies of timber led to the development in 1886 of the Durant-Dort Carriage Co., and by 1900 it was producing more than 100,000 horse-drawn vehicles a year. Some of the companies became suppliers for what would become the General Motors Corp. By the 1950s, the city was second only to Detroit in U.S. automobile manufacturing. The closing of various GM plants in the 1980s and '90s left Flint with a shrinking economy. The GMI Engineering and Management Institute (1919) and the University of Michigan-Flint (1956) are located there

A quartz with a high silica content that produces a conchoidal fracture when chipped It is usually found in association with chalk, limestone, and other rock deposits which contain lime It commonly occurs in small ovoid nodules as well as in larger veins Impure flint is known as chert, which varies widely as to texture, color, grain, and knapping characteristics Pure flint is so hard and even-grained that is use by early man was a vital necessity in producing spear point, dart point, knives and other utilitarian tools Late stone-age man learned that when struck with a high iron content rock, the flint gave off sparks Thus, flint became Iron-Age man's method of producing fire Flint comes in many colors from white to black including gray, tan, brown, olive, blue, and other variants and mottled combinations

flint glass
It is used for tableware, and for optical instruments, as prisms, its density giving a high degree of dispersive power; so called, because formerly the silica was obtained from pulverized flints
flint glass
A soft, heavy, brilliant glass, consisting essentially of a silicate of lead and potassium
flint glass
A soft, fusible, lustrous, brilliant lead-oxide optical glass with high refraction and low dispersion. Also called lead glass
flint glass

chert and flint
Very fine-grained quartz, a silica mineral with minor impurities. Flint is gray to black and nearly opaque (translucent brown in thin splinters). Opaque, dull, whitish to pale brown or gray specimens are called simply chert. Chert and flint provided the main source of tools and weapons for Stone Age people. Flint is used today as an abrasive agent on sandpapers and in mills that grind raw materials for the ceramic and paint industries. Considerable amounts of chert are also used in road construction and as concrete aggregate. Some chert takes an excellent polish and is used as semiprecious jewelry. See also siliceous rock
