Geology/translucent rock

I am not an expert but believe I have a possible answer.

It may not be a rock but rather a piece of amber. Fossilized tree sap.

A million or so years ago a piece of hail, or some other form of ice, became in bedded in tree sap.

To eventually form what you now have.

Sounds farfetched I know, but oddly enough it makes sense.

I hope this helps.
