It doesn't appear to be a fossil, I'd say quartz or something along those lines

Yes, quartz would be a good guess, although it could also be calcite, which would scratch with a penknife. Quartz would not, since it is harder.

And calcite fizzes with vinegar.

I think what is crystallized here is actually the more concentrated mineral(s?) that cemented the form of the egg shape. A concretion is what I believe this to be.

It is possible that the inclusions are fossils of some sort, but I can't actually identify them as such.

TOPICS MERGED

It is best to keep topics together when discussing one item.

One topic is plenty. 

It is still a rock, and not an egg.

I believe Columbia is in the crystaline belt of the piedmont or close to it. I'd google up a geology map of South Carolina to see what you're looking at.
