Granite just refers to a stone composed of feldspar, quartzite, and a few other things. It doesn't mean any specific amount of anything. Looks like that chunk is pretty high in quartzite, low in feldspar, and has a goodly proportion of something with a high iron content. I'll try to show his to my Dad on Saturday. He and Mom both have their bachelors in geology(how they met), and Dad is ABD for his Masters, as well.
Yes...And try planting trees in the stuff when you're digging through SOLID granite...BY HAND!

Did you photograph it in a dark freaking room? I thought you folks figured out how to turn on the lights up there?

Now..which comes first.. the black light test on the rock or the exhaust on the car ?

Sell it to a museum as a fossilized mammoth turd and be done with it. Ask for $10,000,000 first. If they decline ask for $10.00
