Hi I found this when I was at staithes recently from the Beck. Is this a fossil or is it something recent? I ask because the claw has only partially been filled.

Hi Westcoastrock - it looks recent to me. We get similar recently formed lumps of iron rich concretion on the Holderness coast.

regards.

Thanks Roy my initial thoughts was recent but I wanted confirmation from somebody with a bit more experience than myself. How long does it usually take for it to get to this stage? Or to put it another way how recent is it. I really like the item even though it isn't quite a fossil, it's a lovely little concretion and looks good in the cabinet.

Thanks again
Alan

Hi Westcoastrock - I don't know how old it is, but I suspect it is only a few decades at the most. 

regards.
