Don’t know much about gems or minerals but it is a hobby. Can anyone help me figure out what this is? Red and green rock flecked with crystals of something.

If you look close at the red parts those speckles are small blue hued crystalline

Can you identify my rock or mineral?

Rocks and minerals are extremely difficult to identify through photographs. You will get the best results by taking your rock or mineral to a local source where it can be handled and examined closely. Possibilities include:

Your state geological survey
A natural science museum
A college or university with a geology department
A rockshop
Members of a local Gem & Mineral club or Rockhunting club (many hobbyists are experts at identification)
Vendors at a Gem & Mineral show

Geology professionals and hobbyists love to identify rocks!

Or you can post your rock and mineral photos to Identity Help on mindat.org where people diligently attempt the often impossible. https://www.mindat.org/msgboard-11.html
