I found this rock in a riverbed while hiking in northern Italy.

Weighs 2 pounds.

Wonder if anyone can say something interesting about it for me since I don't know anything except that I love it.

I can't say I've ever seen anything like that before. My guess is it's some type of agate. You could send photos to  a local university in that area that has a geology dept. Perhaps they might know the specifics. Looks like a nice find. Congrats.

Not sure what it is. It’s going to fall somewhere on the agate/Jasper/chert spectrum I’m sure. 
 

gorgeous rock though. congrats on the find.
