Collected this out of a venders rock pile in a one for one trade, I’m glad I did. It came from a estate sale and he or myself know what it’s called.
It’s soft about like onyx and semi porous, if any members have a guess please reply. 3 1/4”

Wish I could help with an ID, but I'm clueless.  The dendrites are amazing in it, though.  Awsome sphere!

Beautiful material...I guess without another proposal, consider it as dendritic onyx.  A flashier name could be Halloween onyx with all that black and orange coloration.

Follow the trend and give it a name.  A fitting one would be Purdyite cause it sure is.  Wicked beautiful there.

No idea, but I love the tiger-like colors and the dendrites. It’s exciting looking!

Man those are nice dendrites. Looks like three-dimensional formation? Not the two-dimensional dendrites that form in fractures.

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!
