Hi can anyone help me identify what this stone is.
A magnet will not stick to it.
It will score a ceramic tile with no damage to it, also i have tried scratching it with a knife and it does not mark it.
Thank you very much in advance

In case you are wondering why no one has responded to this. Besides being in the wrong section of this forum it is just a damned rock. Suitable for making concrete but not much else.

Thanks Allen. I didn't even notice where this was posted.
Your answer, although not sugar coated, is accurate.

Yeah, sorry for the crass language. Guess I was in an ornery mood.

Maybe quartzite, maybe sandstone. The lines are neat, but neat is the limit here for sure.
