I don't mean to overkill with ID questions ha. Haven't quite been adjusted yet to a forum group that is actually rich with knowledge. I have so much to learn, really stoked this exists. Anyways I found the left item from Walnut Creek in Austin. The rock to the right came from the Pedernales river from a gravel pit.

Not a problem, We like to help others understand what is going on here.

Just for future posts, the more angles You show the better We can tell what You have. A scale (ruler prefered) in the picture also helps.

PS I agree with JohnJ on this one.

The one on the left is giving me more of an oyster vibe. But you (John) are obviously more in tune with Texas thangs.
