Need some idea of what this is


Recommended Posts

I found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina near the point where the Edisto River flows into ST. Helena Sound.  I am not even certain it is a fossil, but doing a GOOGLE Lens search, found similar images on this site. It is hard with a rough surface. There is a piece of a shell stuck in what seems like a midline on one side of it. Any clue would be appreciated.

Looks like oyster shell encrusted by bryozoan. Nice find!

Should I try to open it?

I wouldn't. Unless you are more interested in the shell. 

Locals may have a better idea if this is a fossil or not. I think it could be modern.
