Just a little info...you can't carbon date rock, only organic material can be carbon dated and it's only accurate on objects that are less than 50,000 years old.

It isn't a rock. Nowhere near heavy enough to be a rock. It is light like antler but that itself is strange as a petrified claw should actually reseble a rock in terms of weight. On the other hand, we hot needle tested it and it isn't fake.

No matter what it is I'm keeping it!

Better pictures.
