    If you can take the rock out then use a hammer and chisel to break off a piece of rock that it is attached to, otherwise I have heard that if you shade the mushroom they apparently will move out of the shade and into the light, not sure if this works though.

    If the rock is flatish and you can get a blade in there easily, scrape it off with a blade at the base, the blade must be sharp and you must do it once or twice as smothly as possible, you trying to scrape it quickly and cleanly.
