I have no idea what this really is. I found it when I was digging a new flower bed in my garden. It is from the east coast of the united states off of the coast of Delaware near the Atlantic ocean (I live less than a mile to the ocean). It looks like something to me, but are my eyes playing tricks on me? I can take more pictures. The rock sparkles, making some of the pictures hard to see, I picked the best I could.
I have had this fossil since I was a child but have never had it identified. Now my son is curious about it so we thought we would see if we could find out something about it. It was found by an uncle near Praha, TX (between San Antonio and Houston) about 40 years ago if memory serves. The fossil in the middle is 1 3/8" x 3/8". The stone has a strange feel that's hard to describe. Maybe like clay or really old chewed-up chewing gum! Thanks for your help. (And sorry for the tags - I needed three so made some stuff up.)
I found this last week beachcombing on Sand Key in Clearwater Florida. Just curious...At first I thought it was just a sea rock with worn holes. But then I noticed the tapered shape and the graduated concave grooves and center hole. Thinking maybe it is the mold of the inside of a seashell? Normally I don't find fossils there but sea was rough and I did find a piece of a fossil dugong bone the same day, which I normally never find there. It measures about 1.25" by 1.25" by 1 1/8". Darker color in grooves and center hole with some charcoal and golden brown hues. Any ideas what this could be?
