Very unusual form; I don't think it is in any way biological in origin, though.

Thanks for replying. I was wondering if it could just be a rock.

"Just a rock" is such a disparaging term for an example of Ma Nature's handiwork...

I find myself wondering how it came to be such a collection of geometric forms and angles, whether it is sedimentary in origin, why it has that two-toned color scheme; questions that probably crossed your mind as well!

I do think it is a rock; composed of minerals, broken, and weathered to its current appearance, but it is odd enough that it begs questions of how it came to be. As simple as it is, it has a history that we will never fully know; "cool rock" is a better moniker for this one. :)

Yes I agree that it is some sort of rock! Very similar to a bone.
