      Hey that’s a real cool looking piece! No clue what kind of stone it is but I would have kept it too and tried to make a pendant out of it.

        Having looked at some pics of Nephrite Jade it doesn't seen to be that kind of material.

        This rock (which I'm pretty certain is natural) as the look and feel of glazed stoneware.

        I have seen examples of that kind of natural glaze on on a single side of hard grey stones in the creek that assume were mineral deposits that had been 'fired' by maybe volcanic action of some kind.

        What it remarkable about this one is that it's 'glazed' on both sides and edges too.

        It can't figure it out.

      It looks a little like fossilized bone. I have found some sharks teeth that are between going from white to black as they mineralize. If it was found near an ocean, it could be water worn into that nice polish.

          So people on geology forums reckon it's Serpentine or Lazurite.
          I just know I like it.

            I would call it a geofact. Not an artifact..
