    I suppose slag is a possibility. The pourous nature of the specimen might indicate that.
    I know of no natural mineral with those properties, but to be sure someone might have to see it in person to be sure.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    This vein is characterized by an amorphous, white deposit either in the middle or on both sides of a blue mineral deposit. The country rock is a an ancient conglomerate.

    Any ideas what this might be? I'm thinking the blue is copper, but not sure.

    This was identified as Oxidized Copper with Quartz Dome by the museum. Can you confirm this identification or is it something else?

    Dustedyou started this thread years ago because of his ability to identify ore and rocks. Since he left this thread seems more like show-and-tell than it does a place where you can come to have ore and rocks identified. I don't see any experts in here any more who can identify samples, which is sad and defeats the whole purpose of the thread. Am I wrong? Are there still people reading this thread who can help identify samples?

    I'd also say the blue is a copper mineral. The white looks glassy, so possibly opal, a hardness test with quartz will confirm.
    Opal is scratched by quartz. If not scratched, it's likely another silica-rich mineral like chalcedony.

    I'd keep looking for sulphides that area, also keep an eye out for gold.

    Better, but still not a good enough image. However: research chalcedony. Perhaps it fits the bill.

    The images ain't good enough to further narrow down choices, I'm afraid. Try again with better pics!

    My first thought was skarn, it can occur with copper & quartz. But it's hard to tell, polished specimens are extra troublesome to ID.

    Do a streak test (= Rubb against a unglazed piece of porcelain) and get back on what colour you get. Also try scratch it with a knife.

    Possibly agate/chalcedony. I'd need to see the rough rock to make a better guess.

    Look closer. I'm here on occasion.
