Found this after I split a rock, not sure what it is. It is quite a odd fossil because it has multiple thin diagonal parallel lines on it and it is also very thin. Unsure on what it is so I D is needed. 🙂

Hello, I think it is plant/wood.
The fracturepattern is similar to that of jet...

greetings, Bert

Hi, unfortunately the photos didn't enlarge / clean up too well, but on the whole I agree with Elbert that it's wood.

I guess the lines are a result of the diagenesis of the rock/wood, it would have been subject to various regional and local directional stresses/strains resulting in the fracture pattern.
