    The outer edge is very hard and inner section is not as hard.

    What material is it?

    Best I can figure is stone on the outside rounded sides. Aside from that I have no idea.
    The inner area can be scratched with a knife easily.

    Well, Fart, hard to say, with no information from you.

    "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.

    Unfortunately, I have very little info myself. What kind of additional info would help? I am new to this whole thing and figured I would ask around before heading to a geologist for some help.

    Instinct is a small hollow stone that filled with mud. I’ve found them in a lot of different places. I don’t know what the geological process is that results in the hollow stones. By me, they’re often iron on the outside and referred to as “swamp iron”, but I’ve found those more quartzite looking ones like yours in gravel beds and clay pits.

    My first thought was some sort of fossilized insect cocoon.

    Welcome Toot! The round part looks like some kind of a stem so I'll guess organic origin. The old folks believed that carrying certain fruits and vegies could relieve the symptoms of rheumatism etc. I have a potato about the size of a 50 cent piece from sometime in the 19th century.

    Thank you everyone for the welcomes and the input. I think I will have to take it to a local Geologist and see what they have to say.

    Fossilized mushrooms. You can see the stem.
