This could be some different things that cannot be described in a photo.

One of the first clues to look for when trying to ID a rock or mineral specimen is to where it came from. This bit of information can tell us a lot. Unfortunately the river may have carried it hundreds of miles from its source.

So just going by appearance I would guess one of two things. Granite is composed of many different minerals like in your specimen. It could also be a conglomerate which is also made of many different minerals cemented together. Look at these pages to learn more about these two rock types.
