Quart. Citrine is yellow quart, but here all the quartz isn't yellow (I suppose on this specimen the colour is due to oxids deposit : On the quartz an not INSIDE).

Looks like a thin layer of agate with quartz crystals encrusting it. Part of a geode most likely.

I would agree to geode with quartz crystals, but it is not a fossil.

A very pretty quartz geode
