I've been slabbing a few off this hunk over the years but don't know what it is. It came from an old stock collection here in Arizona. I suspect some type of plume agate, but would like to know origin and identity. As you can see, it is very distinct.

It looks like a type of flame agate. There are several varieties, so can't be more specific than that.

Red wilder is absolutely correct. Nice piece too. The bottom crimbley green is a dead giveaway. Warning the pink is often sun sensitive. Lots of it laying around at the bottom of the ridge that has bleached white. Hard rock digging too!
