    It looks like a form of limestone with some shell remains in it. A general classification would be fossiliferous limestone. Moved and deposited by water or glaziers by the rounding of the edges of the rock. I like the coquinite idea as a more specific name.

    Not sure if this post was meant to be funny, but it is… 😛

    That said, I do have a stick I’d like everyone to look at.

    Honestly it just looks like a piece of granite to me. It may have gotten some edges smoothed over from being dragged by a glacier years ago. Maybe I am missing it, but I am not seeing any fossilized remains anywhere.

    Agree. Very old, well worn limestone. If you dampen it slightly it may bring out more detail briefly. Find someone that is into lapidary and see what they think. Some of that is very beautiful slabed and polished.
