  1. A few notes on Kambaba “jasper.” It’s not actually a jasper, nor is it a stromatolite. It’s actually rhyolite. 
     

    I also just remembered there is a very similar looking stone to what you have there. It was being sold by a few of the vendors at Quartzsite a few years ago. I think they were calling it dragon stone, but I don’t remember for certain. It was quite soft. 

  2. Very nice!

     Edited to add: keep posting! I love seeing what others find. I don’t post much These days because I don’t get out like I used to and my club’s shop is closed due to covid, but if things ever get back to something resembling normal I’ll Be back to posting up stuff I find and stuff I make.

  3. Unfortunately, identifying rocks through photos alone is extremely difficult. There are times where a proper ID is obvious, but that’s extremely rare. 
     

    that being said, it may well be rhyolite as was suggested earlier. it almost looks like the stuff they give you for fire pits or propane barbecues.
