I'm very impressed that looks like granite field stone from my iPhone. What ever it is it looks like it's a though material  to work. Good job 👍

Oh, that's good stuff.  I feel your pain on the quartzite point.  I recognize that grade of the material.  The whitish areas where the flakes tore as they came off is the tip off.  Super tough, you almost need dynamite to initiate the flake, at the outside edge of what can be called knapable stone.  Oh, and it looks like is has a knot (tougher area yet, flakes just bounce off) in the center.

"Straight Outta Hellsgate" would be a good name for a band.

For them that's wondering, it's the name of a creek in the mountains of Virginia, actually two, Big Hellsgate and Little Hellsgate, which run each side of the Devil's Marble Yard.
