Woodward Ranch plume from Texas is my best guess, given the colors and clear chalcedony surround; but I doubt a northwest guy would feature a Texas agate.

My Response: No sorry. :(    Keep Trying !!
No way! I love Marfa plume! I look for it all the time. But of course Ebay sells the crappy stuff. And the ones for sale on Web sites is a little out of my price range. If I had some to share I would...Joe maybe you can give me some :)

Anyone who can name this one deserves at least 50% discount on it. Your clue:"The rough never has fractures and never has pitting." Never is so restrictive as to imply "lab created": Fischer Stone?
Other guesses named Agate: Copco (aka Jenny Creek), Nyedigger, Deming, Yellow Tree, Blue Moon Dendritic. P.S. looks nothing like any Montana Moss, but I submit it so others will not bother to do so. 

My Response: Fischer Stone YES! Chemically Induced Inclusions in Snake Skin Agate. Discovered by the late Dr. George W. Fischer.

Comments:

It looks like a Fisher stone.  copper inclusions that were infused into a particular snakeskin agate

My Response: Fischer Stone YES! Honorable mention. Steve send me your Email address and I'll send you a consolation prize. :)

*******************************************************************************
Name- Terry Maple


Probably Snake Skin Agate with a man made dendrite in it.
My Response: Oh so close! Sorry Terry. What's the name of the stone? I know that's mean you probably knew the name of the stone anyway. So I'm sending something nice to you too.
