What is this?

Hi there, I'm part of a rock panting group and I found this rock up in the PNW and the first thing I thought was cool I want to paint something hatching out of it! But I thought I'd make sure it isn't something special before I paint all over it. Hoping someone here might know, fossil, geode, concretion?

Thank you!

Hello, and Welcome to the Forum. :) 


It looks like you have a sandstone concretion, or nodule. 

Sorry - people post these all the time thinking they are eggs - they are just a geological oddity. 

The "shell" is much too thick to be an actual eggshell. 

Regards,

Thank you, either way I'm happy. It means I can paint something cool on it! But thank you for the fast reply! I'd have hated to paint on something special!
