Hi,

Can anybody id this please. Found these in varying sizes on Blue Anchor Beach this weekend.
It looks a little like a tortoise shell. 

Thanks. DSC_0005.jpg

Hello and welcome to the forum. What you have found is a septarian nodule. As well as the mineralisation, it may have a small section of bone (the kidney shaped darker patch) and Pyrite (the brown areas) which might be oxidised coprolite(s) or something else.
