This material is a silicified rock only found on top of the ground in Australia, the main cause for being extremely rare. The chalcedony is a beautiful mottled emerald green with inclusions. The matrix also takes on the chrome chalcedony color. Pitting can be seen in the light colored matrix, looks like the result of venting.
Chrome chalcedony has been found in a number of places in Western Australia, this came from near the town of Newman which is approximately 700 miles north of the capital, Perth.
It's rare because it's found only on the surface not under ground. The Australians say it's also to expensive to locate because it's remote and there isn't any water in the area that it's found in. I've seen some other material like this that was found last year, it doesn't look like as nice as the material I have from the original location.
