    I don't know the name, Sham, but I believe it's volcanic in origin rather than sedimentary or metamorphic. I have what I think is the same stone; I got it in a small lot of razor related things. I've lapped mine and have tried it briefly as a razor hone. I've found mine to be worthless as such. Too gritty and relatively speaking, soft. It's a coarse stone to be sure.

    The stone I've pictured seems to be like a very compressed volcanic pumice.

    Sham the coarser naturals are actually harder to find.

    Looks a lot like Granite under the microscope.

    Oooo... A fast cutter around the 1k level in a natural!

    Sound's like a wonderful toy to have on the bench, I haven't been able to find any naturals below maybe 4K-ish level that cut fast enough to suit me...
