The difference between agate and jasper is translucent(semitransparent) or not. Usual Toki-ishi is woody jasper and it is not translucent.

So, since Yani Toki-ishi has low transparency, it is agate. But the transparency is very low and it looks like almost nontranslucent.

Yani Toki-ishi is quite rare than usual Toki-ishi.

Although Yani Toki-ishi has low transparency which is one of big difference between usual Toki-ishi and Yani Toki-ish, the origin seems to be wood as same as usual Toki-ishi.

So, you can find traces of tree in Yani Toki-ishi.

From my perppective, Yani Toki-ishi is hybrid between jasper and agate. It is an attracting point of Yani Toki-ishi
