OK, not as cool as everyone elses pics, but I've always liked this rock in my yard. Has some sort of mineral going down the center. Anyone know what it is?

sort of like Quartz in granite - though the bigger rock looks more like sandstone.


Though some Granite's do look sand-stoney.


So I'll guess, a seam of Quartz in a sand-stoney-looking variety of Granite.

It's definitely granite, not sandstone. I've read old accounts from farmers back in the day who used to curse the stuff when they were trying to plow their fields. There used to a huge granite industry here.
