So these are the before and after of the bone fragment prep process. This material was found at Aust Cliff in the U.K it's from the Triassic. I'd love to get your opinions on what you think it could be, given that it's only a fragment it will be hard to tell. I've not left it in the sun before you ask haha that was just to take a clear picture, don't want it cracking. Thanks guys. I think ichthyosaur/plesiosaur bone fragment as these are some of the most common bones found from there. Lots of coprolite and micro fossils scattered around it as well.

Hi Guy, looks like a typical lump of rhaetic conglomeratic bone bed with indeterminate bone, coprolites and fish teeth (Severnichthys acuminatus). There's an extensive Aust thread on this site that has many photos and comments that you may find interesting.
