identify this layer please.

If that's a recent quarry, my guess would be La Veinette, but I'm still at the beginning of learning to identify.

I would need to see the narrow sides better, but that looks a lot like a Les Petas, a Coticule layer that's currently not extracted. It's likely a vintage stone, could come from any Coticule mine, and therefor impossible to identify with any certainty.

Here are two pictures of a small piece of Les Petas that I had on loan from Ardennes.

Is yours a glued stone?

Kind regards,
Bart.

Bart: Out of curiosity, do you know of or have access to any other samples known to be of Les Petas vein?

Sadly not.

Poor little stone... it's been broken and abused.:( She's got a good home now, I think.

Is that some kind of attempt at a repair with the holes drilled in it, I wonder?
