    Most likely some type of "power tool" with hundreds of years of history..... hand,foot,water,electricity,etc.

    You know what I mean, a tool that runs on electricity, high speed.

    Unfortunately, not jade. I can scratch it with a knife.

    The damaged parts look like serpentine, either bowenite or another type. Bowenite is a hard type of serpentine. In some cases it can even pass the scratch test.
