Found this little chunk in a box of old Oregon rough I bought. It was with some Hampton Butte green wood, but this piece has a very fine Jasper nature. Streamers and some offset fully healed "step fractures". Those features make me think Morrisonite, but that green is very similar to the Hampton Butte material. Thoughts?

Looks like a Blue Mountain piece to me. Very cool material!  dancer5

The color combination of blue green and lavender also reminds me of Skaggs jasper (sometimes called Skaggs Blue or Skaggs Green). It was a ways north of Hampton Butte and you sometimes still see it mislabeled and sold as vistaite (also similar colors, but different material).
