From the top, this looks much like an ordinary rock. Flat on one side, but still rather mediocre But take a look at the other side!
Here you can make out the distinct impression left by the peach pit. The discoloration on the left side is not a scooped-out portion of the rock; it is just a different color of stone.
This is a nice view of the basic peach shape. Note the bubbly depression in the top forward portion. Apparently, the peach half was discarded due to rotting, and the rot spread to the outer skin before petrification.
I am holding the peach half here to give you a better idea of the size and overall shape. It is composed of very hard, nonporous rock. However, the outside and the inner portion still show amazing detail when viewed up close.
So what do you think?
