Hi and welcome

I am not familiar with the area and there is not a lot to go on. To me it looks like shell fragments.
Is there anything on the other side?

Hello and welcome to the forum, but I am wondering why you have posted this in the (minrals & crystals) forum?  It  looks to me like banded flint - can you scratch it with something steel? If you  can't then it's flint.

There isn't much on the underside a little of the pattern but not what you see in the picture, I have scratched it and it does scratch away? See if I can put another picture on

h, thanks, In that case I think the 1st photo shows (possibly) Carboniferous limestone with some bits of 320 million year old sea shells (brachiopods). Not sure about the other bits.
