Here's a video of it. It's roughly about 20 stone in weight. Light penetrates it quite deeply. Complete novice with things like this

looks more like granite or some sort of mix of stuff. whatever it is, its not really what I would consider gemmy, more like...counter top material.

Quartz like this is quite common. I was a rockhound before working in the colored gemstone business. These can be found just about anywhere in the world from pebbles to boulders.

Is it worth any kind of monetary value? It's roughly 120 kilos

A little but the shipping's a killer.

You could send it to GIA :P2.

I agree that it looks like quartz and has been around the block once or twice. It is not "rock crystal" (glass-like) quartz.
