What makes me doubt it is an agate is there is no layering.

Interesting observation. OK, so if it is not an agate what exactly is it? I know you previously said specimen, but of what series on rock family? To me it is not a geode. Cheers, arbayowling

Is the rock all flat and smooth on the surface? If so, this might be an kind of quartz/calcite/agate but i think it probably is a form of Geode type matrix with a mineral in it, as agate has layers and crystals in center. The layers dont show clearly in this piece, but still a beautiful piece! Very unique.
