    Welcome. Pretty rock you have. I'm going to say calcite.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Welcome to tnet! Pretty specimen.

    Your item looks like what is left of a geode with the mineralized interior still somewhat intact. You can still see the small crystaline interior walls that are breaking off. Not sure as to the type of mineral, but you might want to research what types of minerals are found in your area. Also, someone here from your area might help.
