Hi I found these on a secluded unused beach, is there anyone that could identify the attached please? There are 8 in total quite a few broken but some are whole and Egg shaped? There were also bones found near by the police have taken them and too large for human bones.
They are concretions.
Lots of mentions on the internet, eg.
Concretions sometimes have something of interest at their core, such as a fossil.
I can't tell if there is anything in the core of your ones.
The creamy flakes are remnants of thin mineral veins, along some of which the concretions have broken - the vein mineral thence being unsupported and falling to the ground in flakes.
I don't think the large bones are connected, but it would have been nice to have seen them
I agree with Mike he is 'spot' on as usuall.
I have posted some images of a different type of nodule/concretion from the Holderness coast, they are pyritic nodules originally from the Whitby area but left behind after the last ice age.
The first one has fossil ammonites inside of it.
