Curious.  I am envisioning that wonderful pattern on the broken surface as a stamp for cloth or an art print.  Cool image.

That's cool looking.  It's way too interesting as a specimen, but I can't help myself wondering what it looks like on the inside.   :icon_sunny:

These are really common in the area and I have seen them up to the size of basketballs. But they are pretty plain inside. No pattern.
