Hello. I spent a few hours looking around my land outside of Cabool, MO. I found some fossils, but first- is this anything cool?

It does look cool, but I'm afraid that it's not a fossil in my opinion.

Chert ?

I concur with the others, but if it is chert (as Dale suggested above), that is still pretty cool when considering that a lot of chert does have a biological origin, such as the secretions/remains of siliceous sponges (for example). Some chert may also contain microfossils.

Thanks for the lessons. Really. It is a lot of fun to find old stuff.
