Hi all. I'm new to the forum and was wondering whether anyone would be able to identify whether the following two pieces of stone (limestone I believe) are fossils or not. They were found on Charmouth Beach (Dorset UK) which is part of the Jurassic Coast. Picked up a number of ammonites common in the area but not sure about these. They looked interesting though! Thought the first one could possibly be wood because of the brown streaks and what appears to be a central core? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
It is not fossil. It is cone-in-cone structure
Thanks for the response Mike. Learnt something new......very interesting.
Hi Bunny, interesting find.
Sorry i have not replyed sooner, i have attached an image of a similar specimen to yours but with Belemnites on the other side.
For some reason they are usualy associated.
Found on the Yorkshire coast.
Thanks Tabfish. Your specimen looks far more interesting. Even though what I picked up isn't a fossil it's all interesting stuff, so I appreciate the replies. I take it the other piece is just an ordinary stone!
