Is it a clayey or sandy texture? If you drop some acid on it does it fizz? Looks weathered to hell whatever it is.
Clay texture, not sand.
But I haven't got acid to drop on it.

Vinegar, LD, is acidic.
It looks like a form of shale, so sedimentary rock with carbonates of numerous minerals.
Parrots in South America also eat mud for minerals and to counteract accumulated poisons form some of the foods they eat.
Life is far too short to be taken too seriously.
I am far too short to be taken too seriously.
I do not intend to attend every argument I am invited to.
I'm not deaf... I'm ignoring you.

I'm afraid I've dumped the sample in the dustbin. I had to, my rock collection is getting out of hand!
Ride reports, books and more on my website.
