This is a large slab of what has been given the name of "Pinolite".  It comes from a Magnesite deposit found in Sunk, Hohentauern, Niedere Tauern, Styria, Austria.

This material was called Pinolite for it's resemblance to Pine nut. It is actually a graphite pigmented, light grey to almost black dolomite with inclusions of white magnesite. 

It is a very picturesque combination of these minerals that is only found in this one locale. It has become very popular and price keeps rising since no new material has been in the market for some time.

This specimen has been polished on both sides. 16.82 cm x 14.40 cm x 1.40 cm, 618 grams.
