Hi,

I have a small non rock related store. Recently I started taking a liking to some minerals and fossils and started buying and selling a few things here and there. A few days ago a lady brought me a few of the pictured rocks. I winged a price and bought a pile of stuff. Now I hope I can get a little help with identification.

Thanks for your time and help with these rocks.

The top looks like it sparkles like druzy quartz or calcite. Try putting some mild acid like vinegar or muriatic (pool acid) on the back of the piece and see if it fizzes. Looking at the formation I would guess limestone with a coating of small calcite druzy.
