Geologist friends - black marble?

Went looking for some tank scape materials on a friends property, and fell in love with these rocks that I hadn't seen on previous trips.

Any idea if these are marble? I was just planning on doing some pH soaks etc to see if they're suitable, but I'm going to be seriously disappointed if they're not because they're a gorgeous deep black and white when wet.

Thanks in advance!

From what I remember of geology you should be totally fine with marble but an extra test certainly cant hurt.
Those stones really do look great!

I hope they're okay because I stopped collecting other ones after I saw these. Needed enough for a 20, got enough for a 250 lol
