Can you post a photo? Is the stone two separate stones adhered together or were they manufactured as a two sided stone? I’m guessing you have a stone made up of hard Arkansas and soft Arkansas natural stones that are glued together but a photo would be helpful. The white colored stone could be either hard white Arkansas or translucent Arkansas. If my guess is right the soft Arkansas is equivalent to a 600 grit water stone and the hard white Arkansas is about 3,000 grit but a translucent Arkansas is more like a 6,000 grit stone. I’m just not sure what all Smith’s offered when they were in business.
