Not sure if its the right place to post this, but seemed it was the most fitting.

Well, i was at the beach yesterday, just talking a long walk, and i found an odd looking rock. Of course i brought it home with me, and now i am wondering what it could be?

Anyone has a clue of what it could be?

Was found in Husodde in Denmark.

Maybe it's part of a clay plate or cup or something. You should take it to a museum or somewhere to see if it actually is old.

Yeah, a rock, but if you can't see anything in the rock, then you might need some glasses :)

Well i was hoping someone had seen something similar, and could give me an suggestion. Then maybe i could search online, and try to find out more. Just searching for fossil in rock, wont help me too much :)

A geode perhaps.


The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Looks like a fossilized sea plant similar to the ones used for making jewellery, corral....

The white looks like the cortex one sees on flint nodules from the region. Whether it's a fossil or concretion within that nodule is the question.

I've I had to guess, I'd say some kind of colony animal like coral of bryozoans.

What sort of rock is it ?

If it's sedimentary then it could be a fossil,but if it's igneous then it won't be a fossil.

Looks more like painted clay than a rock in the picture.

I know what it is.  It is fossilized coral, I see a lot of it on the beach.  I got some in my collection.
Here is a site pictures of it.  http://skywalker.coc...oral/coralL.htm

I was thinking of a mudstone that formed around a clam and took an impression of the shell.

Looks also kind of it might be a trace fossil of some sorts.
