Hi everyone. About 12 years ago when I was a kid I was playing in a mound of rocks and dirt (left there by construction workers) near my house when I somehow stumbled upon this rock despite it being covered in muck.
I ran home and washed it thinking I found some amazing dinosaur fossil or something and its been sitting proudly on my shelf ever since. Looking at it now I dont think its a fossil at all, but it would be nice if I was wrong.
If secondary school geography serves me well, it seems to be limestone and the spiral in the centre im unsure of. Marble perhaps.
Anyhow, I just though it would be interesting to share with you guys, and to see if I cold get some input on the spiral and how it could have been formed.
Some things I should note are that I do live about 1 mile from a quarry where a lot of fossils have been discovered in within the last 20 or so years, but the rock up there is a sandy colour and breaks really easily so I dont think they're from the same place. I live in South Kilkenny but the rock could have come from anywhere.
