    Hi all,
    I got this from the dump.
    Is was wrapped up in a old blanket.
    I think it mite be a fossil ? It feels like stone but it looks really unusual, it looks like Leaf patterns ?, it looks like it had veins. It's 14 inches long.
    It's got a great look but I'm not sure what it is ?

    Can anyone help me work out what is it ?

    Thanks for looking :)

      It looks terrified, ooops meant petrified. Wood I think. I can't see any leaf markings. Very unusual indeed.

      Might be petrified woof.

      If it's petrified or fossilized, it should be heavy, weighing like rock because it would be rock.

      Thanks for your comments.
      Yes it feels like stone and it's heavy, it's definitely fossil or petrified I'm just not sure what it was.

      What an odd thing, and wrapped in a blanket..weird. It looks like it's melting in places. A most interesting and unusual 'sculpture'. I hope you find out what it is, I'd love to know :)

      It is a odd thing, I can't work it.
      The photos are not that clear on here, hopefully somebody will know what it is or was.
      It definitely deserves a spot in my cabinet of curiosities :)
