Neat,

I see the some of the green and black ones down here in southern Arizona gold locations as well. Thanks for sharing.

I'm rolling my eyes at that chunk of jasper/rhyolite in the lower pic. Pink with the swirl patterns.

That is pretty stuff. I find a lot of similar stuff near Rincon. It looks too soft to polish up but it makes some really sweet tumbled stones.

Do you think that one would take a polish? How big is it?

If you want to work it and post the results on the forum, you can have it. A craftsman could probably turn it into a nice paperweight or algo. It's 3" x 1.5" x 1"

I am not sure I could do much with it. It is a little too big for my large tumbler.

It sure has a nice pattern though. I know I have a few smaller ones tumbled that are really close to the same stuff. If I get the chance I will post a photo of them.

The overall depiction especially the swirls, resemble large waves. You can envision the highest wave cresting right over the surfer's shoulder . . .   Let me know if you change your mind.
