Good Afternoon and thanks in advance.  I was hoping for some help in identifying some stone I have been working with.  they were bought online as a 30lb mixed box.  I was hoping to sell/gift some of my cabs but certainly feel like I should know the stone before hand. Ill attach some pics of the mama and cab.

Tracy,

I agree with Ranger Dave that they look like Mariposite more than anything else.  the second photo of rough is a little too blurry to be sure but the finished piece still looks like mariposite.
