Hey all.

I’m Tom and I’m new here

First time hunting fossils ever yesterday and my 6 year old son found what I think might be a tooth of some sort.

It’s a pyritised looking outer with a crystalline inner.

Any help at all on what this might be?

Thanks in advance
Tom

Hello, welcome to the forum!
This looks like a pyritised brachiopod with calcite filling.

greets, Bert

Welcome Tom, I agree with Elbert, unfortunately there isn't enough of it to give it a genus, but at least you can see the crystals inside.

Thank you both. On closer inspection it’s definitely that. Cheers for your help.

Thanks

For some reason my reply didn’t save.

Thank you both. Definitely what it is and considering we only went looking for ammonite very happy with finding something not on our find wish list.
