hi .found these on scarborough beach with my son jacob.can anybody tell us a little information on what we have found we like the one with the inprint of the shells.the round one shows two pictures the top looks like it may have had a hole at the top but the bottom looks like it has four lumps at each corner.the photo dosent show it how it really looks we thought it looked a bit strange for a rock.thanks beckie and jake
You have some very nice finds their - well done.
First image is known as a 'negative' it's the impression of an ammonite, (Lower Jurassic)
Second image is something very different, without it in my hand I will take a guess because I have found a few specimens very similar on the Holderness coast.
I think it's what is left of a fish, (lower Jurassic) it is in a water worn nodule known as an 'erratic' found loose on the beach. (rare)
Third image is another 'erratic' with a water worn belemnite showing.
Fourth image is again an 'erratic' but I am a bit unsure what the fossil is because it looks to be the cross section of a bivalve but the texture of fossil bone.
The last image looks to be sandstone with imprints (negatives) of bivalves, I find these on the Holderness as well.
Hope this helps and sorry I have not replied sooner but I have been on a week of 'nites' and the computer started playing up.
hi tabfish thanks for getting back to Jake and i. We are over the moon to find such things when we was just out looking for some nice shells.we also found some ammonites which we put on the seashore which Mike Hardman kindly identified . We are now looking to our next visit to the coast.sorry to confuse you on pictures 3/4 they are both the same one of the top and bottom .Thank you very much Beckie and Jake.
Thankyou Tabfish for identifying the types of ammonites in on the seashore for us . We are just a little confused to our 4th picture on this post which you say could be across section of a bivalve or texture of a fossil bone . In regards to it being bone it feels very heavy . We googled bivalves and saw quite a few different ones . This is where we are confused.The black circle presuming would be the bivalve inside a rock or is the hole piece part of the bivalve .Could anybody just clear this up .thanks beckie ,jake
