What is this?!?!

0 votes

I got this from an auction when a natural museum closed down. It was in a lot box that I had bid on and won. Any information would be helpful. This picture does not do it justice. The brown in this image is actually more of a red. I was told it's some sort of crystallized coral. Someone also said it could be river opal. I have no idea. Please help. Thanks.

Looks like a concretion, or a geode which ground water has seeped into and crystalized. The crystal could be quartz, chalcedony, agate...
