Another strange find

Recommended Posts

So I’m kinda a metal detecting guy... but I keep finding things that kinda stick out like a sore thumb that are (non metallic).. actually my son found this one

 

flooded lake in northwestern Ontario Canada...at bottom of a eroded clay bank almost on the beach... looks kinda like a horseshoe crab..trying to get some better pics... with the naked eye you can make out a segmented tail (everything really stands out when it’s wet but not sure if that’s a good idea?)

 

any ideas?

Looks like a Septarian nodule/concretion, to me.

Can We see the other side and edge shots?

See if a metal knife blade scratches it. If not, it might be chert. Here is a photo of a recently collected chert nodule (Zebra Chert) from the Red Wall Limestone near Payson, Arizona:

I'm going along with the septarian idea. It would also help if you could be more precise about location. This would help us determine the local geology, which in turn can narrow down the possibilities.
