Dear Experts,
I found black stone in the field and cannot properly identify it. It looks like marble but it is extremely hard to carve with diamond tools. Could you help?

Nice Gneiss. I like it just the way it is.

Hi guys,
My girlfriend found a stone in the mountains. She asked me to make a tealight candle holder.
I thought it is not a gem. I sanded the bottom, it might be a gem stone. It is very soft , about 2 Moohs. Any ideas?

It's a gem of a candle holder!
