I found this when I was really little, and I'm 18 now. It was inside a bigger rock; the three pieces fit together to make one piece. The biggest piece seems to have some kind of fossil on it.

I've been told that it was all sorts of things even Play-Doh but nobody has ever been able to give me a definitive answer.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello Jaden, welcome to the site. Is there anything from here that you can add to the question (edit it in)? What is that reddish stuff? Where is that supposed fossil? $\endgroup$ – Jan Doggen Aug 20 '18 at 7:30

Your rock appears to be chert or chalcedony, kinds of cryptocrystaline (crystals not visible to the eye) quartz (silicon dioxide). The key reasons I think this is the case are the waxy surface lustre, the very uniform appearance, and the conchoidal fracture (the curved fractures that look like what happens when you break a thick piece of glass). The colours could be considered the variety, jasper.

If that is the case, you won't be able to scratch it with a knife. If you have a quartz crystal, they will only barely be able to scratch each other, if at all.

  • $\begingroup$ I agree with haresfur, its chalcedony jasper. The waxy luster, conchoidal fracturing and colors are there $\endgroup$ – Armondo Villaescuza Aug 20 '18 at 17:48
