Thanks for the input guys.
It's not obvious from the photo but there does seem to be small chips out of the long edges of the flint, that's what made me think it might possibly be worked but as you said it is very water worn, all edges are rounded off now.
I only picked it up as I thought it was a sharks tooth for a split second.

Cheers,

Mick

Here are a couple of items that I found about a month ago at Walton on the Naze on the beach. Initially thought they were nothing but thought I ask here just in case. 

1. Just a naturally occuring mineral deposit or something fossilised? Top view.

2. Flint but is it a worked item?

Hello,
I'm afraid neither are fossils (or worked).

I would not rule out categorically that the 2nd one might have been a worked flint, but now it is too water worn to tell.

Fossil collecting I have discovered is mostly pattern recognition, friends often talk about dreaming of ammonite shapes before or after a 'looked forward too' trip.

As a consequence we see something that looks right or different and our imaginations take over.

We all collect a lot of interesting rocks, only some of which are related to previously alive animals and plants.

Happy hunting
