That top one looks neat with the brecciation and dendrites. Is that Oregon as well?

Thanks for sharing,

All these are Oregon, from the same area. In fact I think it's from the same location as the one I sent you; it's a slightly softer, very fine-grain, 'glassy' feeling material with a deceptively dark orange surface patina. I will cut some more of it today and see if I can chase those dendrites in further.

More 'windows' into things :) I'm making little cubes it seems. Mostly just shearing off matrix/patina to see what's underneath.

First is thunder egg matrix, second is a little orange ball of quartz nodule somethingruther that was unexpectedly pretty inside, third, fourth and fifth are deeper cuts into one from before, and the last is Blakely Island serpentine.
