Perhaps this is an effect from a lightening strike nearby, the clarity is a sign it could have been superheated.

Not sure just a guess.

I have found several samples of this mineral in various places around Vermont. I think it may be a type of Antigorite. It is easily cut and polished.

I am a small manufacturer of jewelry for semi-precious stones. I have been working in this area for 10 years. Our Major stones are Larimar (from the Caribbean) and Dichroic ( a man made crystal ). The majority of our work is in silver and 14k gold. We do not deal in fine jewelry such as diamonds..
