Before reading the description, I thought some sort of mushroom stems.

That looks very similar, save for the quartz looking vein in the OP.
But other than that, I think you got it.

The glassy core looks like an agate to me.

Possibly agatized antlers, agatized petrified wood, or agatized coral.

I'm leaning toward antlers.

It's not really petrified wood. It's like a branch was used to make a mold. the branch is completely gone, and the resulting cavity filled with supersaturated hot water. Supersaturated with microscopic quartz. The quartz can be left behind and eventually fill up the cavity. The formation is similar to opal. the colors are related to impurities in the quartz.


Is that translucent? If you put a flashlight up agains the polished end, does the light travel through the material in the center?

Yeah light definitely travels through it not like clear glass but it does penetrate ene to end .
