So I’m so eager to find some kind of fossil that at this moment everything looks like a fossil to me. But today on the beach i found this weird formed object about 50 cm deep. Anyone has any idea if this is a stone or a fossil?

It is also very light, not stone like at all...

 

found this on Zakynthos, Greece on a beach close to Banana Beach about 30 mins away from the capital.

A weathered sedimentary rock, not a fossil.

Awesome thanks! It’s still cool so I guess I’ll keep it.

Maybe man-made?

Is this a seam that runs around it?:

Could it have been molded of a 'light-weight' material?

No, not a seam it's some kind of small shallow crack. It's not molded, I took a closer look at it but couldn't find any kind of seams.

Looks like a  thin mineralized vein with slight displacement of the opposing sides.

In focus picture would help to clarify the issue.

Ye it’s a rock, when I’m home home I’ll put it under my microscope to see what’s inside those cracks. Thanks for the help tho!
