found while exploring a hill top and side.it looks like a finger with a bone showing at the end and what looks like a finger nail.it lifts out of the rock.and when i placed one of my fingers in the indent it fit well.makes me wonder if it could possibly be a fossilized finger of some sort.

There is not much detail in this rock. I pooks like a segment of orthoceras, a straight shelled nautiloid, but that is just a guess.
