That’s what I was going to say but I was going to wait for someone smarter than me to say it first. :)

I can imagine it being a bivalve steinkern with the hinge line being on the left in the smaller photo. I suspect the layered look inside is a contraindication though.

I was going to wait for the same reason, but I figured it wouldn't be the first time if I was proven wrong. :D

I'm not disappointed really, it's nice to know what they are.
