    I bet there is a fossilized critter inside that rock. The only way to know is to break it open. Just drop it and see if it comes apart.

    Here's a random list of traits I'm seeing on mine. (I just pulled it out and examining it again after many years.)

    Crystallization and Fossilization has been considered by several folks, but, doesn't seem to hold up ?
    A small magnet "hangs" from the band, but immediately falls if I slide it over to the rest of the rock.
    Metal detector fails to react.
    The band definitely runs through the rock in a flat, planar fashion ... a layer.
    When the ends of the plane are ground and polished it has the look of a rope or spiraled sea shell.
    The "stitching" and the rock definitely have a different hardness.
    Both take a polish ... the rock gets very smooth and shiny while the stitching gets a little less polished.
    Not sure how to describe it ... no matter how deep I ground and polished ... the ends of the stitching plane takes on the look of a spiral with little voids remaining ... like trying to polish a rope ?
    But, no matter how deep I go, the vein continues in a flat, planar fashion. Nothing appearing round.

    This was an odd mystery for me, many years ago, and this is the first time seeing another example, and remarkably, is coming from the exact same part of the country.

    I understand someone bringing it home for a garden rock, because it does have a unique and curious look.
    I hope someone can help explain this natural formation or come up with a term that it might be further searched.
    Actually, I have lost interest in this thread.


    "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.

    NO!
    I love the taste of water, frozen into squares, and surrounded by rum
