My mum has dug up her garden and found this is it just a usual stone or something special??

No idea but it's lovely!

You found a baetulum!
(Disclaimer: it's probably not but I've never before had the opportunity to use that word...)

It came up shinny not need to clean it

Not sure, but I wouldn't leave it in the house overnight in case it started glowing at 2.04am, summoning its true owner.

It's definitely magic , but has possibly been helped along by one of those machines that people have ( or used to have ) for grinding stones against each other in a small barrel, to
make them permanently shiny.
If I had a stone like that I'd keep it in my pocket and fondle it, as well as wishing on it.

Well impressed academic 🤓

My daughter is going to have it as a worry stone... she will keep it in her pocket and undoubtedly it will go in the washing Machine at some point

I do like that you have posted this in Gardening, where all the stone experts obviously reside!

Bahaha I am neither gardener nor expert in stone so I took a gamble

Is it light in weight compared to a pebble the same size? If so, it could be jet or cannel/candle coal.

Hold it up to the light or on top of a torch, is it slightly transparent and brown more than black and a bit like glass, then it could be obsidian which is a volcanic glass.
