In a momentary lapse of reason I acquired this big block of yellow/red sagenite. It's a section of seam, about 5-6" thick and weighs 10 pounds. Trying to figure out if it's Mexican or Indonesian and any other info I can muster.

There are some dodgy looking areas, but also some areas that look really nice. Shame I only have a 10" saw (that's where the lapse in reason comes in)

Thanks!

Indonesian Flame Sagenite I believe.   I would suggest considering having someone with a bigger saw to slab it - perhaps a trade for part of it as payment.
