    Strange Rock with straight lines worn in it

    Found this near the Arkansas river. Looks almost like someone used it to spool fishing line on. Any ideas? Click image for larger version.

    Heck, I haven't a clue. Kind of does appear to be hardened clay inside the rock though

    Wild ass guess - a fossilized scute (from a turtle maybe) still embedded in the rock matrix.

    Here's a loose one. Crocodile, armored fish, turtles, etc.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Looking at the pictures magnified it looks like something oil based that has hardened on the underlying stone almost like tar or something like that, possibly an epoxy or resin.See if you can pop a piece off then heat with torch.Give us the results.
