Decking material

This decking is from 1985 when the pool was installed. Does anyone know what it is (what type, besides concrete)? More importantly, if I can stain it a color?

My old house had flocrete, but after 5 years in the FL sun it was time to re-stain. I pressure washed it, used TSP, then re-stained without any issue. I would like to know if I can treat this decking in the same manner. thanks

Try acid on it in an inconspicuous spot and see if it fizzes. If so you can more than likely coat it with whatever you choose.
