China hollow from Wasco Oregon.

I have seen it described both as agate and also a jasper.

The cabs I have seen from this look "foggy" just like this slab appears, which I don't really care for. Don't think there is much I can do differently with this brownish chalcedony.

I've never heard of it, is it new or old material?

I am having a hard time figuring it out..

I keep coming up with this :

First mined by Fred Dormaier of Wasco Oregon in the 1960's. Now owned and operated by Don and Jill Hilderbrand also of Wasco.

There must be a connection of this material to the Biggs and Picture Jasper found on the same claim/ranch  https://www.linkedin.com/in/don-hilderbrand-23524584/  Perhaps this heavy chalcedony material is something newer from the claim ?? 

Guess I am confused...
