    For those who collect arrowheads no explanation is necessary, for those who don't collect arrowheads no explanation is enough.

    The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

    You could have picked that up at many spots in the Texas hill country; it is a nodule or concretion in limestone that did not quite become flint. When this one broke open the innards were softer and they were etched or eroded out.

    Happy hunting,

    Yeah, what he said. lol

    Nice Concretion though and it may have actually had a fossil in it to begin with.

    You betcha! Watch out for those (soon-to-be) flying flakes- right now they are more just little crumbles pffting to the floor..

    I would have said man made but I've never seen anything like that before. Still learning.
