Hi, this rock is very unique and has some strange inclusions. Any ideas.......? 8ACABFA1-8D80-4DDF-A4AE-0FFF6F73D848.jpeg  3B992285-1DFD-4F6D-A267-66BC654F13E0.jpeg

Agree with Gary, some form of micro/crypto crystalline silica, (Chalcedony). Could the curved white lines (are those the inclusions you refer to?) be associated with an internal stress pattern that's affecting the passage/reflection of light?.....just a thought.....
