First post so fingers crossed. Not sure what this agate is but the colors around the rind are crazy. Purples, teal, orange/red and even looks like a tiny plume top left.  Bruce

Reminds me of a Moraccan Nodule.

Agatas not know much about , but your stone is very pretty. It has many possibilities . Do not forget to teach when you have finished the picture.

A greeting.

   Beacon Hill, Idaho agate nodule is my guess. The pocket of debris like material at the bottom, multiple colors, odd shape and banding are all common to Beacon Hill nodules. I have cut hundreds of them just to see what was inside and I was rarely disappointed.

Thanks Guys!  I think I have been on facebook too much. I keep looking for the like button to click for your replies!
I came away with 90 lbs of slabs I purchased from one of my friends on Sunday and more than that in rough.  My 12 inch saw has been running nonstop and in less than a week my oil is already looking like pudding! Birds eye palm root will be here in a couple of days so I better change it tonight. Thanks again,  Bruce
