    I agree. Please take a photo without as much magnification. Good luck!

    WAG without knowing the magnification would be a lace agate of some kind.

    Here's a partially polished one.

    If you are referring to my post and not the original thread starter - that's a Wikipedia image. Google "Crazy Lace Agate" and there are lots of lapidary shops that sell them. Lots of it comes from Chihuahua, Mexico.

    I was referring to the OP. That guess was based those types of agate have similarities in color. That can be another possible ID. Thanks

    The mineral habit is what is known as "botryoidal". It's a common form for several minerals, notably hematite and goethite, but also chalcedony. This is botryoidal hematite (with larger forms of the same habit seen in your rock).

    Have you tried streaking it (on the back of an old porcelain tile)? Hematite streaks red-brown, goethite streaks yellow-brown. If its something quartz-based you won't get a coloured streak.
