I think it is a very beautiful leaf. The veins look like real veins to me, like a 3D effect:)
What is its name?

Sorry, forgot about naming.  "Frustration" would be the first thing coming to mind, but I think the best way to describe this wonderful material would be "Forest within", because of sooo much individual growth within this stone. ura

Plus maybe one more thing to add.
A dying leaf contains everything that makes new growth possible.

So, "Forrest Within"is fitting.
