I think rudists have a different shape, and are often a lot bigger.

What age is it? if it is Mesozoioc I would say it is a rudist.

Nice specimen!

Its odd for sure. One side has a concave shell. It almost looks like an oyster embedded in a section of a rudist reef.

Even for a reef, that must have been a tight one!
