That sure is a nice piece you got there. After I looked at it the second time it looks similar to the "All-Seeing-Eye" sidewise though. Maybe that is a good name for the cab!

Interesting! I saw some fire obsidian for sale at the Quartzsite Arizona show in recent years but it was expensive and nothing as spectacular as what I am seeing here. The one as the show, you really had to look at it at exactly the right orientation to see fire. The fire did not come and burn your eyes like in these photos here.

just thought i'd let people know that i found a needle pocket last year with fire in it at davis creek. the fire is gold but not the gold sheen. as far as i know, fire has never been found outside of glass buttes before. i also find some good fire above the cattle pond at glass buttes, not the claim. the spot is also known as the glass buttes needle dig, although there are few needles there. what i found strange about that fire dig is that chalcedony sometimes forms on the outside of the larger obsidian boulders.

Beautiful! I live in Oregon. Been to Glass
Butte many times. Best specimen i ever found there was a thumbnail of silver sheen. I'll have to make another trip i guess.

i just finished a 3" sphere of glass buttes fire today. it has one little pinky sized spot of fire on it. it's really hard to catch the fire bands in a sphere when cutting them. all my others have always just come out black.

Hi Elmer. I was just up IN Glass Butes ever my friend has the only claim of fire obsidian in the area. Not to say it cannot be found elsewhere within the Butes. But I have a lot of killer rough that I am willing to part with if your interested at all. Happy to show you some photos or video. Let me know. I know how lucky I am to have been blessed with this amazing meterial I mined myself.
