    This was found SBD. National Forest. Approx 40-50lbs. Polishing up like metal. Non-magnetic. Not sure but the pics are getting better or I'm becoming a great photographer....
    Thanks to everyone and your comments are criticized and appreciated... Jk

    SBD? Looks volcanic to me. Maybe it was in seawater

    This is a piece I broke off and scuffed up. I roasted it also and still non magnetic. If it is bornite, how long would roasting take for the magnetism to take place?

    It may be andesite porphory. This variety, assuming it is what I think it is, looks like a lava flow. I found a photo online that looks like it. Google Andesite Porphory, and look at the images.

    If you live near a college or university take it in to the geology department and ask them to do a work up on it. The students at the school in my area like to do them for practise and extra credit. Good luck! Hefty beat me to it on the Leaverite, but the closer I look I'm thinking it may be an exceptional Igneous Love Stone specimen.

    Response to your post

    I was unclear as to what an Igneous Love stone rock is... I ran a Stannous Chloride test on the rock and it came up with positive for Au (Light Violet) and Very + for platinum Pt. (bright orange). I know this is just a quick +/- result but I was curious if what BurntBear said about it containing precious metals. I'm going to wait to assay it professionally with a Full PGM Fire assay due to finances but I took your comment as I had something really good (exceptional).
    Thanks, Mark
