Hi All! I am brand new here. I have had a life-long interest in all things archaeology/paleontology/geology and was always digging in the dirt as a kid. But I am a veterinarian by trade and have not a clue about any of these awesome things that so intrigue me, lol.  The fossil pictured below is one I found on my parents' land (where I grew up) probably 30 years ago.  I found it in a little valley area where a creek runs between two fairly large hills. Anyone have any idea what I have here? Thanks a bunch! Michelle

I believe this is not a fossil. I am unsure of what type of rock it is though. Welcome to the forum and I hope you have a nice day!

Water worn sandstone/quartzite with quartz veins (thicker ones on top and bottom, thinner oblique ones in middle) which have weathered proud. So not a fossil but I would have picked it up for a closer look...

Thanks a bunch! Makes sense based on where I found it. Appreciate the feedback.
