Default Petrified wasp nest






More likely some kind of coral but figured petrified wasp nest would get more people looking and possibly someone positively ID what it is

We just closed on a neighboring place and it was in the yard about half buried

Apparently from the looks of things some former resident liked rocks

I thought it looked pretty cool

That is one neat rock. I think it is coral but I have never seen petrified coral with the holes open. I love it..

Cleaned it up a little

Looks like little cells are mostly filled with quartz or at least what looks like it

Close up

Those little lines in the first cleaned up picture says it's probably not a wasp nest. I'm going with some sort of coral.

Geologist here but need more info. Where did you find it? Odds are it is coral, just trying to determine age to figure out what type of coral it is. Beautiful piece and am extremely jealous!

Bought a piece of property in Smith county, it was half buried in the edge of the yard
Apparently one of the previous residents was a rock collector, all kinds of rocks
Unfortunately I have no useful info on where it originated from
