This is very unique. I have what looks like a rock, but have kept it around for 20 yrs because it was very heavy and I was curious. It cracked in half lastweek and is a beautiful silver , but, also, has a fossil like design inside, maybe a flower. It is about the size of a medium potato and weighs about 2 lbs. I can't send a pic now because my phone is broken but maybe my old camera will work if you want to see one.

Hi. I sure would like to look at a picture. Does it stain fingers if you run the silvery side?

No, it doesn't rub off neither the darker outside nor the silvery inside. I am trying to download
pics for you-no smart phone here! The battery is dead so that may be why it wouldn't download.
Am charging it now.
Expert: Martin, Engineer replied 8 months ago

I can wait. By the way you should say upload instead of download as you send the pic instead of rceiving it.

As it does not stain and because you mentioned it is heavy, we can rule out graphene formation.

It does not look like a typical fossile rock to me.

Perhaps it contain lot of metal. It look to have the expension formation patern of a volcanic rock formed underwater. Maybe the brownish compount is rust, dit you test it with a magnet to see if there is significant amount of iron?

It might also be a petrified wood knot:

those can be quite heavy if pyrite accumulate into them.

Might also be a meteorite. Those often produce a very heavy final fragment on earth because it need to be hard to not break on impact and it also have to endure hot temperature in atmosphere entry.
