Hello, I found this in the same field as my previous post. Is it a fossilised bone and if so, from what? Thank you. X

Hi Laura,

Don't think it's bone, but part of a flint nodule, probably with the remains of a fossilised sponge inside.

I totally agree with Curt.
You can always tell flint from most other stones / fossils as you cannot scratch flint with a steel object.
