Please help me identify

Was sold to me a miconite, I don't think there is a stone by that name,  They are beautiful and have flecks like fish scales.

Your stones have been polished. It is very hard to identify polished stones, the process removes identifying criteria.

I have seen a miconite stone on esty, which looked like labradorite. Miconite is a mineral, but whether these stones are miconite or not is hard to tell. Where did you buy them, and how reliable is the seller?

Also, could it be actually micronite or micanite? I just ran a quick google search and those also came up.

After doing more research I think it is Larvikite.
Thanks for the answers.
