SD, you're famous! Tell us more about this. I seem to remember you posted something on this a while back, but forget the details.

I really have only guesses as to what this is.

The stone appears to be like petrified volcanic mud.
I would imagine different lumps of another kind of clay in the mud
when the stone was split eons ago it exposed the different material.

I personally think the boot print is actually the evidence of a holdfast form kelp or some prehistoric marine growth.

Pure conjecture on my part.

I did collect a casting for a museum.
They sent me a box of different types of material to form a cast.

Any geologists on the forum? Or marine biologist.
