This double flow tuned out to be pretty cool but my photography doesn’t show all the color very well.  The second cab is Lemon Chrysoprase.

Thanks for looking,
Mike

Darn, just when I think that I have heard the names of most of the stones, you guys come up with another type.  Double Flow Obsidian?  Kind of looks like regular and mahogany obsidian with a little yellow thrown in.  Geeezzzzz, that's pretty.

Thank you all for the nice comments. 

I have a bunch of obsidian slabs lying around (from cleaning my blades) but this is the first time I worked any up.  I was very pleased with the results.

Christopher, my post could have been worded a little better to avoid causing confusion.  The last stone is the Lemon or Citron Chrysoprase; the first two photos are of the same stone just with different lighting.

Actually Mike, if I had read your whole post I would have known. All I read was obsidian I didn't even see the mention of chrysoprase.

I'm with you.. Always a new one ! Never heard of the Double Flow ..

I know what you mean Mike about not being able to get the full effect of a mineral to show up. Looks great !

Beautiful colours in the doubleflow. Obsidian is one of my all time favourites. Every time I go to Glass Buttes, I find something diferent.........my wife says I look like a deranged kid in a candy shop. A lot of truth to that one......it is rock candy.
