My son and I were walking around Swinley Forest, Bracknell, Berkshire, earlier today and my son spotted this unusal stone. We think it could be a tooth but have been unable identify it. Can you help please? Many thanks.
look like rock where did you find it
No tooth I'm sorry to say, its a banded flint.
I think these are a bit of a mystery regarding exactly how they they were formed, but they are very common on some chalk beaches & commonly mistaken for fossils.
Thanks, Keith. My son wil be disappointed - he wamted it to be a dinosaur tooth so he could show it off at school.
