    Please Help me ID this rock!

    Cant express or capture the amount of silver it has. It was greenish but I washed it with dawn and it's now more of a grey with some dark green opaque marbling. I noticed it at the river becuase of the silver reflection.

    Possibly a schist which is a metamorphic rock, just a guess from the images.

    Definitely schist. The "silver" is one of the mica group members, most likely biotite mica.

    Awesome! Thank you for the help! Is there a way to eliminate some of the rock to expose the crystals/gems inside without breaking it?
    Super appreciated!happy turkey day ����
