No. Looks more like a slate variant.

seriyu rocks are hard to come by as supposedly there is a ban still on going.

there is a rock called ryuuoh stone which is similiar looking to sieryu rocks.

Most often they are both mislabeled.

These rocks were sold to me as Seriyu a few years ago (not sure if they really are) but they look different then your stone.

A ban? Why would they ban stone?

Seriyu rock is a fancy name, this kind of rock has been wildly used in most of Chinese Gardens for decades, 青龙石 is their Chinese name. this picture might be taken from a florist shop in Chinatown. yes this is Seriyu rock.

Since i can't link other links.

supposedly it is illegal to harvest seriyu stone directly from japan since year 2008. other rocks may be or may look like seriyu stone that is why i posted that it may be ryuoh stone.

If you google about seriyu stone you will find a bunch of forums suggesting the same idea.

I am no expert... i am just offering my +1.

I would hate to see another member to purchase something that possibly be mis-labeled and mis-represented.
