Interesting geological pattern or fossil?

I'm not sure if this is a nice pattern or perhaps a fossil? 

Many thanks.

It looks like the cross-section of an ammonite.. maybe a few in there.

The big wishbone-shaped line is the x-section of an ammonite shell. I think there are smaller x-sections to the left of that showing chamber walls, maybe the inner whorls of the same ammo. The other lines around the piece must be bits of shell too.

That's great thanks.
