    I picked up a slab at a show and the seller had no idea what or where, etc. Really a beauty in my book of what the heck is it.
It would be nice to find some more of this stuff if I find out what it is.

thanks,  neal

I'm not sure if it was the same thing, but I saw a stone with similar pattern,but somewhat different color, referred to as "fireworks jasper."

    When I cut the slab it had no signs of being any type of obsidian. Much more like a jasper sediment type of rock. Cannot think of the names right now but I am aware of several rocks that have star type patterns when slabbed. The answer is out there.. thanks all

Looks like Rose Eye Jasper covered by snow flakes.  Hard to see thru the white or whatever it is, but the pattern underneath looks like Rose Eye Jasper.  Check out the pics at this site and compare them to your stone:

I searched through my slab pile and found this one. It was labeled Starburst Jasper.
