Dear Forum

My mother got theses "stones" a long time ago, they seem like fossils to me, but I don't know, she told me they were in a plough field, close to Pécs in Hungary.

the big one: 9 cm x 6 cm 

the little one: 6 cm x 4 cm         Thank you so much for any help:)

+1 for ironstone concretions. Sometimes these are hollow and have sand or other debris in them. Makes a rattling sound if you shake them.

I am sorry but these aren't fossils

 

Concretions can sometimes take the form of apparent fossils like these specimens below

Thank you so much Guys:) live and learn

 

I tried to shake it, but It is solid,  but the lines of my stones aren't so regular as your examples, could it be a writing? or it is just a random pattern and doesn't matter?

It's a random pattern. It's still a cool geological object though! My niece once gave me a rock that she thought was a fossil and I still have it with me. Why not keep this too?
