Welcome to TFF!

This looks like a rock with mineral veins and some differential weathering.

Not a fossil.

I agree with ynot. Interesting looking structure at any rate.

If I might indulge in a bit of speculation. Visitors to the fossil site at mistaken point are instructed to step on the layer of volcanic ash (without tip toeing off the cliff).

Could this be volcanic in nature ?

Edit: Just noticed the tag. Found in home. Yeah that's a volcanic bomb all right. :D

Does not resemble any volcanic rock I have seen.

I'm in the differential erosion camp, so I guess it might be something close to Boxwork (speleogen) .
