Hi, we found this rock on a local beach where a cliff is being eroded. It had a small fossil pattern exposed on one edge. We’ve broken it open and found a shell of some sort. I would love help to identify it. 
New Zealand, South Island, West Coast

thank you 

i don’t know how to reply to anyone! Sorry. 
I’ve put more detailed photos up but not sure if they’re helpful 

Also apologies that the rules say your hand shouldn’t be in the pics

Without better up close photos, it is might be a septarian nodule or concretion.


EDIT: looks like shell might be preserved that has irregularly cracked. We need to see close up photos to see if we see echinoid texture and plates.

It appears to be an echinoid
