Is the rock too large to take to the nearest rock and mineral store? The color says aquamarine to me but that is difficult to verify bythis picture.

The rock is around 2 feet across. I did not attempt to move it. It is now covered by several feet of snow so I cannot go back until spring in order examine it again.
One more question, where in the world did you find this, general outside in my backyard in phoenix, arizona will give us geographical perspective.
I have a puddingstone just like that but it has a Lake Superior Agate in it. Two feet across, about 15 inches thick
Well, I was wandering through a logged out area in New Hampshire, and I looked down and there it was.
