Melisa, it could very well be a Boley. Definitely fits the bill, as a brecciated jasper/agate.
Looks like a cutter to me!

Yes, I did find it. In the Boley area, but at the time it was collected, I had never heard of a Boley agate. Found a lot of interesting rocks in that area. Lots of deep olive green agates like this one and a lot of cherts that were pink and purple. Didn't know Oklahoma had much for rocks, but apparently they do!

@ Nancie, that is awesome! Do you collect there often? I'm from Wisconsin and happened to be in OK for a few days. I'm sort of a 'glacier follower',  when it comes to finding rocks, so that is how I ended up near Boley, and I am sure glad I did. Neat stuff there!!

Melisa, our rock club goes to the Wewoka area, looking for Boley Agate. Actually Boley, OK is probably 80-100 miles north of Wewoka. Kind of sounds like you need to lead us on a field trip!  dancer5

Sounds like fun!! If you pay for the plane ticket, I can most certainly show you where I went.
Brought back about 10 baseball sized ones like this.

Of all the things I've lost..I miss my mind the most.

Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

Melisa, I found these on the same trip Nancie found hers. Considered these to be cutters.

Very nice Melisa.

Dave filled you in our rockhounding adventure in OK.
Those cuts look great.  I need to cut some more of my OK finds.
