Sigi, It's a round green rock with a nice shine! I'm sorry, I guess there's a smart A in every bunch. I guess it was my turn today. Only a guess, but I would say it is some slight varation of chrysophras. Kinda gemmy lookin! pretty cab though..........gr

sounds like a dubbed name by who ever sales the rough.
I have purchased stone rough that is sold under names that are not its true ID. It takes some digging to find out the true name of the stone
of the stuff I have purchases under other than what it really is:
Piccasso jasper - really a marble Zebra jasper - really a marble Cotton candy serpentine - none/no pictures exists for this stuff purchased from a friend in New Mexico who went out rock hounding and brought it back and sold it as cotton candy serpentine Vista onyx - from Mexico but maybe not really onyx at all but some sort of mix of onyx travertine
there are lots of others too numerous to get started on
Some gemological data's: density: 2,66 g/cm³ RI (Spot): 1,545 Chelsea-filter: reddish dark brown, strong hardness:~6,5-7,0 pleochroism: grayish green/yellowish green, very strong inclusions: little pyrite
mr.mohs: are we talking liverwurst here ? that stuff in a tube?

kk: Liverwurst and Braunschweiger are two very different sausages. Qualitatively seen; Liverwurst is a AAA+ and Braunschweiger a C-

geezer: In central Indiana it depends on who makes the braunschweiger. Meijer sells the stuff made by the old Kahn's company. The stuff from all of the other stores taste awful.

Don: I enjoy braunschweiger on danish rye with a pickled beet slice.

wampidytoo: Oh yeah, my mother made fantastic pickled beets. Haven't tried store bought since she died because I was pretty sure I would be disappointed. Bread and butter pickles from the store aren't too bad but don't compare to home made.

wampidytoo: Y'all need to stop talking about the foods my mother used to make. Jeeze mohs, headcheese with a little vinegar and pepper. Mouth watering. Nose going haywire.
