Banded/Speckled Agate or something else?

Hello All -

I have a couple of photos of a stone that my grandmother supposedly found near the Mississippi river and kept, many years ago. My father showed it to me and asked me if I could find out what it was...(I'll post 2 pix).

The back side (not in the pix) is more of an opaque brown color. But, as you can see, the interior is translucent-ish, with an almost purplish irridescence to it. Running through it are a couple of stripes and a bunch of dark speckles.

Does anyone have any idea what it could be??

Thank you!
Clarissa
