Hi I have found these today on mappleton beach some of them I think I know what they are such as sea urchins and possibly wood but the last 2 "fossils" I'm.not sure of and I'm not even sure one of them is a fossil so would love some help could the last one possibly be bone? And the one above I have no idea. Sorry for the poor photos and I only have a 2pence piece to give an idea of scale hope that's ok many tha m&s in advance.

Hello Becky, here's my opinion!
  1. ?coral, possibly Caroniferous
  2. a mixture of ammonite, belemnite (lateral section) & possibly crinoid ossicles
  3. regular echinoid (possibly Cidarid)
  4. Echinoid (heart urchin, possibly Micraster)
  5. wood
  6. a very, very worn 4
  7.            ditto
  8.             ditto
  9. bone (I think rib)
  10.      ditto
  11.      ditto
  12. ditto

Hi Becky - you have some really nice finds. I particularly like the echinoid, a beautiful example and quite a rare find on the Holderness coast.

I agree with Colin for the first 5 identifications - are 3 and 4 the same specimen?
I think 6, 7 and 8 are conglomerate/ breccia, not fossil.
Not sure on the last one, but it may be bone.

Hi both thanks very much for your replys it is great to see I have have found some interesting things. 3 and 4 are actually 2 different specimens one seems to be in flint with a chalk outer coating but the larger of the 2 I have to say I was really chuffed to find. As for the others some look great in the flesh it is interesting about the last 2 as I really can't make my mind up about them although I do think the last one may be bone it just feels right in the hand as for the other one I can't make my mind up but even if it isn't a fossil can't complain thanks again for your input both [smile]
