A complex array of spheres hanging in yellow and red, with blue and gray showing through! This stone puts me in mind of either the macrocosm or microcosm, planets circling in an interstellar cloud or the eggs of amphibians around stalks at the edge of a pond. How these kinds of patterns could be formed in an igneous rock, I cannot quite imagine!
