Hi A close up. It contains shell and the shapes chip off as if flat in section, almost plant-like. I hope this doesn't sound stupid , could it be coprolite?                                           2014518161533_IMG_20140518_161207.jpg 2014518162422_IMG_20140518_161148.jpg

My first impression is a worn nodule of Pyrite! More pics (different angles and a close-up)  and measurements might help a bit. Afraid I've never been there, but assume it's Jurassic?

I"d agree with prep01...i think it's a lump of pyrite in clay thats been rolling around for a while & the iron has turned the clay brown.

Hello, I think this is either a markasite ot pyrite nodule that has been transformed in hematite over time.
Or at least the outside of the nodule wich is hematite.

The typical color gives it away...Big smile

If broken, the nodule will probably show a radial structure in a golden color; typical for markasite...

 

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...
