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: Embrace your addictions. They are what makes you special! I wonder, is rock hoarding a genetic or learned behavior?

150FromFundy: One more question ... If you are a confessed rock hound, are you a hunter, or a gatherer? Maybe we need an anthropologist on board to answer the tough questions.

drocknut: Both Jean. Also both hunter and gatherer.

jakesrocks: Neither hoarding nor genetic Jean. Rocks are fossilized rabbits, and just seem to multiply just like live rabbits. (Ever wonder what all of those little chips in the bottom of a box of rocks were)?
