Found this at the creek the other day. Thought I would ask the pros. Natural?

Looks like a piece if limestone. They can create some interesting shapes, and may even contain fossils as I guess there was a great quantity of water here once. I found one with an imbedded shell once, still have it somewhere.

Very interesting. Those parallel lines the same distance apart do not look natural. Any way to enhance these in photoshop?

A plow was the first thing that came to mind with the straight lines but they look too precise to be from a plow. I wouldn’t have a clue how to enhance the pictures.

Interesting. Those perfectly straight lines and 90 degree angles, I don't think they are not natural... someone, sometime had their hands on that rock.

I have some rocks just like the one pictured

Picked them up in a field after they had been run over by farmer pulling a farm disk
