🔎 UNIDENTIFIED It's extremely hard, broke all my tools. Light shines through and the parts that are fractured it extremely bright in the sun.

I agree it's some kind of conglomerate. Any tips how to break it up without totally destroying it?
Rock saw. If you do not have one I would bet someone near you that does cabochons and/or members of a rock, gem, and mineral club have one. Google your area for clubs near you. They will be glad to work with you I am sure. Stop beating on it till you talk with them is my advise.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Periwinkle kryptoniteI would be very careful with that rock. Periwinkle kryptonite. A non-canonical variety. Exposure to periwinkle kryptonite causes Kryptonians to lose all their inhibitions.

So you destroyed the 12 lb sledgehammer.
It doesn't show impact marks.
Maybe these are his tools. I'll bet I could turn that piece of common granite into dust with an 8lb sledgehammer.

I have tried a magnet?
Does it appear molten / refrozen? possibly meteoric?
Almost everyone owns a grinder. I'll bet my grinder will go through it. Different blades available including diamond blades($40). I have used them for cutting block for retaining walls.
Please report in your results after using a grinder.
