I believe what you have there is a variety of nice Gneiss. Your previous post said it came from the Republic Mine which based on https://www.mindat.org/loc-19621.html the parent rocks are Gneiss and Amphibolite. I have cut and polished several pieces of Gneiss with great results. I prefer the small tight bands since they still show the structure when cut into cabs. .

made from this specimen . Im going to crudely polish this piece a bit more tonight. if turns out better I will annoy again. lol
