    Yellow Lakes are typically purple or grey with green inclusions. Can't say they don't come in green for certain, but I don't think this is one of those.

    I've had a few of those and I know for certain it's not one of those, mine were purple and easier to lap than this. This stone seems closer to an Ark Translucent but not as hard

    I don't believe this to be a CF. If I hadn't seen the pictures and only saw your description, that would be my first guess. but my CFs are a much "duller" green than that. and like RezDog said, many of them have red/brown streaks or blots through them. Not a requirement by any means though. Mine are both about x4 as thick as this one (+2" thick), which is pretty typical from most CF's I've seen, they tend to be a bit chunkier.
    I would be curious to see what it looks like dry

    I'll try and get a dry picture later tonight, dry it is grayish and reminds me of an Escher/Thuringian

    1st photo says that it's a CG: the same surface texture as there is
    https://yadi.sk/d/SZkkKnIVtkU5c/Wels...6/P4249110.JPG
    or ...mhh.. I don't have better primers
    Hardness - that's right: hard enough but not as an ark or charnley.
    there is a bit of info about subj (rus):
    Cambrian Green - Guns.ru Talks
    It's not a thuri or smth else, but it's a nice stone and I should say you're a lucky: this example is very pure (no yellow sparks).

    Interesting. Looks too green to me to be a CF. Hope you find out what it is. Has Piet looked at it yet?

    It could be a Charnley Forest. Especially the last picture indicates that. The brownish crack. Looks like Charnley Forest.

    It could also be a Lynn Idwal, with is also a novaculite, like the CF. LI is around 10K and CF is around 12K.

    I have a CF with is similar.

    From left to right. First 3 is CF. Number 2 from left resembles yours. No 4 is a Lynn Idwal and no 5 a Cutlers Green.
