almost finished prepping a find from hock cliff Frampton on Severn 
can anyone shed light on if this is a bone or shell?
there is a pyrite Crinoid up against it
thanks for any input

Got something similar...could be a sponge attachment to the rocks but I am not an expert. Something like Hyalostelia but the date would be wrong for the area I think

Could be wrong but I'm still leaning towards bivalve.....I see a veneer of 'shell like' material with ribs/ornamentation surrounding a calcite core. Assume if you kept digging it'd taper to a point....wedge shaped bivalve that tapers to a point.....Pinna maybe.

Hello, this looks like the sharp end of a Pinnashell; your `right Pete...

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