Fun Fact: In 2009, a man was chasing one of his goats up a mountain slope a few kilometers from the pueblo where he lived. He stumbled over some rock that he thought looked unusually pretty and picked some up. In 2011 some of this rock was offered for sale at the Tucson and Quartzsite Show in Arizona. That is when it was cut and polished and given its name, Sonora Dendritic Rhyolite.
