    Hi'ya lkMI.9,

    Welcome to TNet, and bravo on some wonderful photos. That is a wild one! Does it fluoresce? Please tell the backstory.

    I found it in a gravel pit in north west Michigan just outside traverse city definitely a rock of some sort a little heavy for its size and the colors are awesome thought it could possibly be some sort of agate but doesn't really resemble any type I've ever seen.

    Google " detroit agate / fordite " My guess considering the area you are in.

    It's definitely not fordite and I don't think it's rhodonite because there isn't any pink in it.

    I believe it's jasper-- with that much color in it, probably formed in an ore body.

    I've seen jasper pretty much like that, but with less small-scale complexity than your specimen.

    I think Dave nailed it; Jasper with either magnetite or hematite. I've seen those myself, to.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    This is definitely microcrystalline quartz var. jasper. Wheelerite hit the nail on the head, it's brecciated jasper. The matrix that's holding the pieces of brecciated jasper together is most likely hematite. Great find.
