hi found these in the bottom of our going away bag must have missed them last time we posted our finds .the greyish rock you cant see off my picture but the white edging reflects light like facets of a diamond .the black stone is the same piece a picture of the top and bottom the white lines look like they have been scribed into it.jake and i wondered if anybody could tell us more.
The first two images look to be flint with some fantastic shapes on the surface.
Your last one is a cross section of a sea lilly stem.
Nice finds! have you found any more?
thank you tabfish that is amazing we're really proud of our finds now we know what they are .we have no more but are going for a few days to the north east and we love Marsden rock so this time we will be looking out for more things of interest rather than collecting shells. And best of all its free:)
North East - try Marske, very much like the Holderness just hope the beach has been stripped of sand so you can see the rocks that contain fossils.
To be honest, the linear marks on the first two photos look somewhat like they have been scratched-on by a person.
I might be seeing hints of small gastropod like Turritella in the crinoid-stem specimen; top-left of the crinoid.
hi Mike for all the life in me i cannot see the small gastropod. Nor can Jake is there any chance you could hi-light if not not no problem.hi Tabfish we will have a drive to Marske on our way home thankyou.
ah now i see Mike,didn't know what we was looking for thanks .beckie,jake
Good picture Mike.
Saw this piece of flint on the Holderness coast tonight, not the same as yours Bex but very similar.
