Hi, I am new to this, but have come across this cracked open stone, near Baslow in the Peak District. Sorry, forgot to add a scale, but the hole stone is ca. 60x40 cm. The 'seed', if it is a fossil at all, is somewhat between an A5 and A4 paper size. It's a clean and smooth cut, the other half of the stone was a couple of meters way. the side of the 'seed' was neatly rounded, had a darker colour and a surface that was slightly rippled. Or is this just a stone within a stone?

Hello and welcome to the foru.m. The geology of the area is Carboniferous 300 - 360 million years old but I don't think this is a fossil, certainly not a seed.

Hi Colin, thank you for your reply. Well, it was just a bit of beginners wishful thinking ðŸ˜Œ
