Didn't see this one in this ID section, so thought I'd add it. I think this stuff is a bit soft to take a good shine (haven't tried). One theory for ocean jasper is that it formed as an orbicular rhyolite that became completely silicified. The patterns would seem to match at least. -Don
rockpickerforever: Cold here (56 degrees, brrr!) this morning, but it'll warm up soon enough! Expecting temps 20 to 25 degrees above normal today and tomorrow. And those Santa Ana winds. Not even a hint of a breeze right now...
