I found this on Worthing Beach and I can't find out what it is. Can anyone give me an ID?
It is 3 centimetres long and 2 centimetres wide.
My initial reaction is 'banded flint'.
In this particular case, I think it may have been a smaller piece (the banded part), which later became enlarged by accretion of further flint.
I can't quite rule out a fossil origin, however.
Thanks very much
I would agree with Mike about the specimen being banded flint but it look's too much like a fossil, but I do not know what of.
