Broken slab of yellow rust-stained, buff-colored firmly cemented quartz sandstone (?) or quartzite (?). The grains are too strongly bonded to pry apart. Closeup clearly shows granular texture and purity.
Sedimentary. Sandstone. Quartz arenite. An alternative classification is quartzite with a low grade. I can't differentiate these without a thin section.
