Help? Rock made of bubbles


Recommended Posts

It's not a fossil I'm guessing as it seems it's quartz but has all these hundreds of bubbles and tiny crystals.  I Lens it and cannot find a match online.  Thanks for any help. I'm learning!

This piece looks like a granitic pegmatite that is mostly reddish garnet (?) with a fair amount of quartz (white) and mica (silverish), any holes (bubbles) are where another mineral has weathered out. There could also be several other mineral/crystal forms in there.


PS non fossil queries should be posted in "rocks and minerals" sub forum at the bottom of main menu.
