Deadbeat
I found this unusual stone in my garden while doing a bit of digging  along the borders. I have no idea if it is of organic or inorganic origin. It is quite dense/heavy for its' size and I've attached a couple of photos of it. If anyone has any idea what it might be I'd be interested in hearing from you. On the outside the surfaces very mottled and  looks almost tree bark like. Anyway thanks to Ratty for talking me through how to post items on the site. 
Regards

I think it’s flint 🙂.

I think you are probably right - just a rather unusual specimen of a flint.
Thank you for responding.

Welcome to the forum - yes it's flint - a mineral (SiO2)  (Flint, Chert, Agate, Quarts varieties etc.)
