Chalcedony or agate is my best guess. Where did you find it?

It was found in Julian California
Hmm... Is it translucent?

I do believe we cannot rule out obsidian.

It's too lightly colored and too transparent to be obsidian. Most likely a type of chalcedony, though the photo quality is poor and it's hard to tell because of that.
