How much is granite worth?

So today I went down to some local woods with a hammer (Geode,granite,marble hunting) and I saw that 2 friends of mine had dug up a 20-30 pound rock. It was a heavy little bugger. So I swung the hammer at the rock for half an hour until I had about 30-50 small chunks of granite. The main reason I broke it was so that me and my friends could split it. One of my friends didn't want it. The other friend wasn't allowed to have it. All that was left was me. So I then realized that it was way too much to carry around. So I told another friends that didn't help do anything but polish the freaking thing with a brush *pauses and laughs* that I would give him all of it but 3 peices. I'm starting to regret saying that. So I wanna know... is granite worth anything/expensive?

U could track down someone who would be willing to make something out of it, like a jewel crafter, an artisan, or even your local business/ home owner who would like to spice up the garden. Or u could craft and sell ur own things, like chess pieces for example. Nothing is completely useless as log as u know what to do with it

I was doing some landscaping and stumbled across a rock of granite that is a good several hundred pounds in size..if I was to sell it to a manufacturer, what would the money-weight ratio be? Or what would be a recommended way to sell it? That is if it's even worth the trouble of digging up?

Dig it up and sell it! Are you positive it is AT LEAST several hundred pounds?
i know here around seven tonnes of it are, in large slabs, accessible to me and others uninterested, I've been considering using the small slabs as new steps for a house, you'll understand in a soon coming 'ible.

It's only valuable if you have truckloads of it (to use as hardcore or track ballast), or enormous slabs of it (to sell to artists or to be sliced into table-tops).
