Peculiar Rock

by SM. Rodriguez
(Dallas, Texas)

Hi, There!

I am not an expert but from the moment i saw this very peculiar piece of rock... My mind became very obsessed over the fact that this particular rock is more than just a rock. I would love to know if this is more than just a fine piece of art created over the years by nature.

My husband found it, while a normal day at work. He thought it was very interesting and brought it home for me to see. I now have a very eager desire to find out what exactly this is.

I thank you in advance for examining, my photos!

Iron ore

I think it's a piece of iron. The 'concretion' in the last photo may deceive you, as I think it's a product of weathering. The color is kind of a giveaway as it appears to be rust. Iron oxidation is rust!

This is something special but I can't tell you what it is.

Maybe on of our visitors can shed some light on this find.
