    That's a septarian concretion, aka septarian nodule. It's not a fossil. These formed from balls of clay buried in sedimentary deposits that dried out and cracked, allowing various minerals to seep in, which over time formed the different colored crystals inside. I used to find these on my family's farm in upstate NY - they're very cool.

    As a rock hound myself this is a really great specimen. I collect lake Superior Agates, I find my own and have never bought a stone myself but I know that some people will pay a ton for the right rock! Sorry I cant classify it but I have a few books too and will take a look. Post if you find out:)
