Yoy may be getting tired of me saying this,but that,s pretty,I like pretty rocks and you sure show some pretty rocks.I don,t know what you call that but I recall seeing something like that when I was a kid. In railroad ballast before they started using this danged crushed blue rock, I believe it,s crushed granite. No character,one rock looks like another.

It is a sedimentary rock, it could be sandstone.

I try my best, granite how? And would it be all over translucent over half inch deep? Never saw translucent granite

Even if it has facets?
Sand is a silica which is basically glass so it would have shine to it and it does look polished by maybe water or some other process or possibly a spray varnish on it to bring out the wet shine look.

Details of where you found it would be helpful. I think it looks like a piece of gneiss that's spent some time in a primordial river or lake. If gneiss doesn't have too much mica and has enough quartz it can be polished like that.

With hand tool and paper?
