I sure hope so, cause I lugged about 50 lbs of it down a mountain.

If it is, can anyone identify the type of ore, and if it has any value to collectors as is.

Thank you!

Thank you very much for the warm welcome. I'm from Moncton NB, Canada.

But anything on the rocks?

did you find it near where you're from (NB)?
Sure does look like a copper oxidation zone, maybe tenorite & various copper oxides/carbonates.

Can you do a streak test with the black and green minerals (with the green find the most solid surface)?

Definitely looks like copper or to me. Azurite or malachite. Fairly common but nice specimens.

Sure, let's find the muddiest lake and look into a bottle of whiskey to find out how many Indians there are in Korea.

Short answer: We could guess, but your best bet is an assay.

The reason for that is while maybe a collector is uninterested, a mining company might be curios.
