Hi,

Please identify what is that on the picture that I send you. Thank you.

Answer
Dear Mr. Kolin, Good morning and Fraternal greetings!

It is very difficult for me to identify the rock unless I see it with naked eye. Some of the physical properties like color, transparency, hardness and other properties are required to be studied. Please indicate the area where you got the sample and other properties.

It may be pebble type of variety stone.

with regards
