Good morning,

I recently found this stone in Cliffe and I’m wondering what it could be?

Do you think this could be something man made or formed naturally in the nature?

It seems that the same pattern we see on the first picture is repeated inside the rock.

Thank you.

Hello, what you have found is part of a Septarian nodule with small Calcite crystals and metallic Pyrite crystals. Lots of information on the net about these structures. It will have been formed in the Eocene period, about 45 million years ago.

I totally agree, Septarian. Was also looking up Concretions which can be very similar looking.
