Very interesting but I'm reasonably certain it is not a gem in a gemological sense.
It is a gem of a curiousity though.

Kinda looks like a fossilized or petrified nut or something in that nature. Like to cut it open and see what's inside, but that will be destructive.

That is a great question, and as Barbra stated a gem of curiousity. Will the OP please standup?

Not what I planned for one of my first posts here, but...

It looks like a lumb of Coprolite, something stepped on. :D

Welcome! You might as well start at the bottom of the heap, nothing butt up from there.

It looks a lot like Moldavite, often called desert glass in North Africa areas.
