Hi Folks

Sorry to bore you but could this be a fossil?
It is very light.

I do not think it is a fossil. I cannot recognise any structures op living compartments of corals or other organisms. I thing the rock is some volcanic pumice rock.

no fossil indeed

look for reaction with HCl to look if it is a weathered limestone, or to the microstructure of the stone if it can be volcanic rock (pumice)

Vuursteen= Flint(stone) or Silex. The stone shown here aint flint, pumice also seems the most reasonable to me.
