Sorry -- I tried posting this earlier and don't know what happened to it.  I'm still going through all the rocks I've recently inherited and found this one that I love.  I believe it's a piece of Montana Agate (Moss agate?).  Sorry for oversharing, but I get excited when I find some of these unique pieces (at least to me)  I've become a rock nerd!! ura

It looks to me like a scrap from the trim saw that someone's tumble-polished.  I've polished a number of similar pieces.  It makes a nice conversation piece.
