Shell? Fossil? Egg?

Recommended Posts

I can't figure out what this might be, I hope you can see it well enough. It was very hard to get good pics of the crushed side. I think it could be a crab shell, it's crushed but firm tho it seems slightly pliable and even breakable. It's not. The "mouth" seems to be more of a dent than an opening since sealed over and the perfect little circle on the top reminds me of a horseshoe crab. Some of the pics are color saturated to enhance the detail as best I could. Please, help, so curious!

I think it could be the remains of a badly preserved echinoid ?

Could this be, as well? This looks similar to some images I just pulled up online as I had to find out what an echinoid is, preserved well or not. 20180105_054250.thumb.jpg.e705093e19ec7718afbb5e10d9e550d3.jpg20180105_054058.thumb.jpg.21ea18ea4e260ee7b82f09bd82625ca7.jpg20180105_053345.thumb.jpg.ce7782cb9548f780481d69a1353a2696.jpg20180105_052956.thumb.jpg.421cb374b446d4c52a40abef25dfab43.jpg

Not sure about your first item, but I think it is geological in nature.

Your second item looks like a water worn river cobble.

Does geological in nature include plant material? It's definitely not hard like a "rock."
