I found this fossil on a job site. I look regularly and usually only find crinnoids (geodized) and maybe a few native american artifacts. But for the most part just flint, geodes, and other random stones. 

But my son and i are both very excited about it. We have never seen or heard of a fosslized nut.

Definitely a brachiopod. 

I took the liberty of cropping, contrasting, and brightening the photos.

Thanks to you, thousands of folks will see it, read about it, and learn from it.

Much, much better than a nut, it's a brachiopod!:D

Hello, and a very warm welcome to TFF from Morocco. 

It's a bit worn, but I might take a tentative stab at Athyris sp.

Thank yall... This is the first iv found that looks this way. Fossils and rocks have always been my passion,  which passed on to my son, so we will definitely keep posting we find new stuff quite often... Most are shells coral and what we call indian bead's. ... And have found quite large ones here in Michigan. But thank yall again this was very helpful
