I uploaded 2 images to the gallery. I received this rock back when I was a kid and the owner (Sal Avella) said it was rare. It is about 4" x 5" x 3" and weighs about 8.5 lbs (twice as heavy as a normal rock it's size). I recall him saying it was Rhodeislandite (I was a kid so it is just recollection) and after searching it looks like it has Cumberlandite in it (it definately came from Rhode Island). When I saw him a few weeks after he gave it to me he was shocked he had given it to me and said it was a museum piece - of course if anyone knows Sal Avella he is a nice guy and said keep it (loved that guy)... This was about 35 years ago... Maybe I should try Sal (is he still with us?). Thanks for the help...
