I've got a fancy agate pyramid. Does anyone know more about this crystal?

I don;t know for sure, but it sounds as if it may be a dyed agate - they are extremely common.

Do you have a pic?

I haven't heard of it, have heard of a lace agate though, could this be it?

It's dark green with light green & red specks. Could it even be bloodstone?

This is the only really relevant thing I can find (the term doesn't seem to refer to color):

Fancy agate - term sometimes applied to agates exhibiting unusually intricate patterns.
