What am I?

Here's a simple(?) What am I? quiz.

This one has sort of the same color vibe as A Bendy-Line “What am I?” Quiz from a year ago, but it's definitely not the same.

So, what is the object above?

As usual, I'll keep submitted guesses hidden until I reveal the answer in a few days.

Had thought first rock or stone however in looking at same, something perhaps made by nature as opposed to something manmade such as the large denomination Yen money. And whatever it has not been magnifed iti s as as it exists.

Perhaps the outside wall of a paper hornets’ nest?

Not positive, but it resembles a hornets nest or a bees nest of some sort possibly.
