Found in a rubble, I suspect the rock suffered a secondary breakage. Not heavy, smooth and glassy texture.

Adam, What do you mean that's nothing special? That happens to be a very rare specimen of leaverite.?

I see nothing special here. Why did you post it?

Thanks Adam, 

I posted it coz this is a forum for identifying rocks.

If I had free time and the sample is the size of my thumb and not the size of my car, I'd crush it and then pan to see if any gold showed up.  I've done this a few times to a dirty, red looking quartz in my area, and have come up with a couple of specs of gold.  For my samples, I had found those loose in a creek.  When I find the rock naturally occurring in the ground in bedrock, I've crushed dozens of those and it was good exercise but no gold.

Jimale,

 

I've attached a picture of sample from my local area that seems similar to what you posted.  I found this metal detecting and it set off both my metal detector and my pinpointer.  Since it looked like a piece of possible gold ore local to my area, I crushed it and panned it, but found nothing.

You ought to crush and pan your sample to see what you find.

This rock had been collected from a quarry, 40km from my home, its heavy, with magnetic field.

Maybe it's the different lightings..?
I agree with ya on the second shot..
But #s 1 & 3 look like slice-o-hamstone to me.. :4chsmu1:

For the sandstone pic that's magnetic, does it move a compass or does a magnet stick to it?
