Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I really don't know!

This is a closeup of it and I'll put it in its full context after the fun...

I've had to go back to the US for a spell, I'm still here, and have been consumed with work.

I have missed posting, but I have been pooped and I don't care what anyone else says, this posting stuff is exhausting! ;-)

This looks like a fossil.  I once found a very large nautilus fossil that looked something like it.  Or it could be an ammonite.

I don't think so...

I just noticed the scoring on the upper right, and it is clearly, at least to me, rodent teeth marks! Neat, something tried to eat it....

Here is the picture in toto.

It was 'growing?' -don't know if thats the right term- under the roots of a tree and it had that fungal look, very organic in some way, but it also looks calcified and the blue-green cracks and lines have a distinctly mineral look...
