I found this while rock hounding in the desert of west Texas. Specifically out of the Del Rio, Texas Area.

It is the Del Rio Formation, Cretaceous Epoch.

 For some reason, I could only attache one picture. So sorry about that.

Any help with identification would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, 

joe

I see a rock, but can we see the other side?

This is two additional views. The first one is from the side, and the second one, is the bottom.

The other views make it appear a lot more like a rock. Notice your second picture, there is sediment layering
