I'm going to say, it's a boy.

no seriously, it's hard to see what's going on in your picture. It's impossible to confirm a mineral by picture alone. When its an unclear picture that looks like a baby ultrasound it makes it that much harder. Maybe start with better pictures and some details about the stone in question? Otherwise you're just going to get more snarky remarks.

It looks to me (from the picture) to be one of those slabs that you buy in a stained glass store. That would make it glass.
