To me it looks like impure jade or serpentine. Is it greasy to the touch?

Not really sure, it doesn't seem greasy to the touch, but it is very smooth
Massive serpentine is my best guess.

Another possibility could be celadonite with basalt, if its from the igneous basalt area.

That is true, that area is in a basalt area. What beach, may I ask, as that is not to far from where I live, might make a good road trip. :)
