Definitely inclusions, though going to be difficult to tell by just visualization. Goethite is definitely a possibility. Tourmaline and epidote are both also a possibility, though i did express the unlikliness of this coming from Ohio, though its not impossible.

If anyone is from nearby in Ohio... I would be happy to bring em on by so that someone could take a look and positively identify! Any readers out there want to volunteer their services... drop me a PM

Thanks again Hershel and everyone else

May buy a digital microscope to aid in the identification process.... This should help right?
