Thanks to all for the help. Serpentine or serpentinite it is. Unfortunately, not something I can use. At least I got it cheap...

If you cannot use it try putting it up foor trade on some of the Facebook lapidary swap boards. Maybe someone will trade for something you can use.

i picked some at a yard sale awhile back also thinking it was something different because it was wet & had a shiller in the sun after a rain.
now its a porch rock. Some day i might cut it or sell it to a carver.

Decided to try a cab of this material.....Took a nice shine, but does not have much color. Looks black under normal light.
