Got this in a box of old slabs. Not the best quality but has an interesting form. Ideas on where it might be from?

Thanks!

Looks much like the brown Rain Forest Jasper from Mt Hay Queensland.

Actually Spherulitic Rhyolite which is associated with thunder eggs.

Had someone suggest that it looks a lot like Ahnikov chalcedony from Czech R.

Photos online look very similar. Anyone familiar with that material? All the websites are in Czech. 🤔

Thanks!
