This is a very nice specimen from my store.

An opalized fossil trunk from the Eocene - Virgin Valley - Nevada

Gotta love that Virgin Valley material.
Once when I was in the area and much younger, a guy showed us an opalized gooseberry he had found there. It had stripes and seeds inside and was full of fire. It was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.
