?fossil

Just wondering if this is a fossil I found on the coast today. Is quite small about a thumb nail size. Any ideas? Thanks guys.

 

The last photo is just of the other beauties I found today.

    Hi Ladylu

    Red stone looks like quartz to me,

    small one with a lots of holes, lava?

    and the fossil might be a coral,

    I`m still an amatour, just guessing

      left: unknown rock with irreular vein of (probably) quartz

       

      top left: probably a thin piece of limestone with a vein of quartz or calcite, forming the main surface shown

       

      top right: lava - yes, could be, but it could also be just a pebble of limestone that has had recent borings by marine organisms of one sort or another (eg. gastropods)

       

      bottom: part of a vein, looks like quartz

       

      right: piece of limestone, with what might be a coral

    Hello Ladylu

    Wow - some very nice finds, to me the best one is the red stone with quartz crystals inside, looks water worn and could have been a geode.

    Keep an eye out for some full one's it's very unusual.
