Guess what I am holding

Taking a slightly different tack from cropping a bit of a photo for you to guess the image I have used the entire photo.

Can you guess what this is in my hand?

It is natural and nothing has been done to alter it from its natural form.

It is quite heavy and yet it is quite easily broken if dropped.

We have this on display with a few other natural objects but this is more interesting when broken in half.

I believe these can be found in various places around the world but are the result of specific natural events.

I can't tell you much more otherwise I will give the game away in full and may as well tell you!

I wonder if anyone will know and if this goes down well I have a few other weird objects I can have you guess in the future.

Whoops?No photo of you holding something in your hand?

Okay, once I'd commented, the photo appeared emoticon :smile: it seems some sort of rock, but the blue bits confuse me. We have a pumice rock here in New Zealand, a kind of volcanic rock.

It's a piece of flint. The material which started mankind on the road to technology.

It looks like some kind of volcanic rock in my opinion.

It's a geode, maybe. That's always more interesting when broken in half. That must be the clue.

I really don't know what it is. I thought at first it was a clay object from a sculpture or something, but you said it was a natural object. I don't know. Pumice?

I am not sure but from its looks, I think you can find it at a beach or desert?

Is it a geode? I know they are very pretty when broken in half but not so pretty on the outside. A friend of mine used to be a rock collector and she had some of these she had polished.

catsholiday Well, it is obviously a stone. And from the looks of it, it is blue-green on the inside. I bet it is better looking broken. What kind of stone it is, I am not sure.

It looks like what I've got on my windowsill - inside is a whole load of crystals I'm guessing.

No idea what it is. It can be a dried up coral or a limestone.
