    Looks like granite from your countertop, but I don't know the species. Am I right?

    A very good guess, but while you are correct in that it is a stone, it's not granite.... Not igneous. Think mineral []

    looks like Marble, although i can not tell from exactly what. if i was to guess i would say based on the damage that it was a rolling pin, pestle &amp; Mortar or portable work surface.

    Okay, maybe it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be? It's a piece of polished jasper, specifically the "leopard skin" type. Jasper is a silicate mineral, as opposed to granite, which is feldspathic. Pretty, huh? Average "spot" size in this sample ranges from 1-4 mm.


    I think I need to pick something a little more commonly known... LOL sorry folks. [:P]

    Okay here's my second try at stumping you guys. I think I finally found a subject that people should recognize, but isn't a dead giveaway.
