Hello Everybody!
I'd like to ask a little help to identify this mineral? Unfortunately it's not in my hand so I'm not able to test it. Thanks.

Hi Paduc.


I would say it´s not a mineral.

I believe it´s a rock probably formed or stained by iron oxides.

This is not a mineral.

It is either a piece of fine-grained red sandstone that has been weathered into an approximate sphere, or, more likely from this one photograph, a piece of brick that has been similarly weathered.

I agree with the weathered brick hypothesis.
In Tuscany, rich in terracotta artifacts, this stuff is quite common on the beaches.
