I've moved your post because it had nothing to do with Gemology Schools.
Please give some thought to where you are posting.

Speaking as a geologist, it appears to be a rock of some sort. I can't really tell more from the photos, sorry. There are lots of tan rocks out there.

:wink: Speaking as a gemologist, this doesn't look like a gem to me. It looks like a rock, as Stephen pointed out.
