Is this even a fossil?

Hello, I found this, already cracked in a field in Northamptonshire, UK. It has a strange pattern on the outside and a streak of orange inside. Sorry for the bad photo quality.

Thanks.

Sorry, I'll see if I can get better shots.

Sorry about that, are these any better?

I don’t think it’s a fossil but I’d could be wrong.

Ah okay, thanks.

Better lit, close up photos might help.  But, right now it looks like a concretion to me.

My phone isn't too great at taking light photos, I may have to wait until tomorrow to get some better pictures in daylight. Sorry.

I found a lamp. These pictures may be a little better.:)

It's a concretion. Did you make those scratches yourself or did you find it that way?

Then someone was probably working on it in the hopes of finding a fossil and then threw it away when he saw that there was nothing in it.

That must be why it was already split then. :)
