UKKM, Very nice, there are some fantastic bark patterns. Potentially theres a chance that the large piece is still there  (if you can remember where it was)
Have a nice day :0)

This was a piece of sandstone I managed to chisel off the side of a river bank in Scotland,roughly halfway between Edinburgh and Glasgow IMGA0113.JPG

Looks like they might be scour marks from a turbidite deposit, with the striations indicating direction of flow.
. . . we greet them with awe because they are the Old Ones, and they are trying to tell us something.

UKKM, Looking at the geology guides of the area it appears mainly to be carboniferous. Its definately bark of some kind you have there and I think it displays many attributes of basal lepidodendron where the easily recognisable leaf scars have become less evident and and actually move apart as the trunk inflates in diameter and grows in height. Nice find.
