Hi All

Just finished this and again I have no idea what the stone is. I am very bad at ID of stones. It cut easy and is softer than an agate. It is done now now I can start a cab for the contest.

How soft is it?  It looks like Howlite which is about a 3.5 depending on the piece and I have some that seem more silicate and hardness just under 4.5.
