Can anyone help.i found this item on the beach.its a dark brown outside colour and a caramel orange colour on the edges.it has a waxy feel to it.the item looks as tho it was kind of an arrow shape with a ridge running up the face and some other kind of carved looking part on the bottom right.
Flints come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colours/patterns. Inevitably some of them look a bit like something particular. In some cases they are just that, eg. a sea urchin fossil (geological) or arrow head (archaeological). In many more cases, however, such as yours, they are not.
To be a flint tool, there would be either: a) more evidence of working (small conchoidal fractures) and a more precise/symmertical shape, or b) a smoother overall shape (for a grain-grinding tool, eg.)
At least you're looking; that's a vital step before discovery.
