Usually I have at least a guess at whatever I find is, but this has me stumped

Possible, but provable ?

It's going to need a little help rising above simple concretion I think.

Really need better pictures of both sides.

The one picture of a side is at an oblique angle and half in shade-- does not help with making a determination of ID.

I agree. Much better photos in bright light.
