Another rock Identification - veriscite?

this rock was given to me by a lady in Pocotello idaho. She bought a small farm and there are all kinds of interesting rocks around and has no idea if they are native or were brought in by the prior owners. I think this is one she said they made a foundation wall out of it. I slabed it up without taking a picture of the rough, sorry. Pictures of some slabs and cabs follow.
