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. 🙂 Click image for larger version - Name: 90D5AB04-DC89-4BB7-8208-9156F2294159.jpeg, Views: 65, Size: 709.76 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 33A7AAA5-9636-4061-A4AF-EBDF40F7D6BF.jpeg, Views: 63, Size: 362.15 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 9E0BD822-B783-4B8A-9CB8-A1AD98F734EE.jpeg, Views: 56, Size: 633.38 KB

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

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

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

Any idea what the diagonal lines cutting across are?

Probably Calcite/

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.
