Dinosaur Egg or Cool Rock

Does anyone recognize this as an egg?  There are a couple shell fossils on it. I’ve had it for a while and always call it my dinosaur egg as a joke. Then I googled imaged a picture of it and thought it might be.  Thanks.

It's understandable that you would hope this to be an egg. Unfortunately, it's not though. This is a concretion.

I agree. Concretion.

 

There could be a fossil inside of it, though.  About a 50/50 chance.

I think I like it too much to crack it open… lol

 

You can always glue it back together, if you don't turn parts of it to dust. Some concretions contain beautiful fossils. Risky business. Tough decision.

 

 

Mark.

 

Fossil hunting is easy -- they don't run away when you shoot at them!

Sounds like a lot of trouble to me, unless you enjoy doing puzzles anyway. I would expect this one to have a lot of pieces and I'm afraid the odds might be south of 50/50 on this one myself.

Maybe contact a tile-setter and use a wet saw??
