Hi all! Found this over on cromer beach in Suffolk. Was doing the usual belemnite hunting (of which I found several, along with a couple of echinoids) when I came across this. Thought it might be a fossil of some kind but then I flipped it over and the layering threw me for a loop. Any one able to shed some light?
Cheers!

Looks like a banded iron concretion/nodule of some kind, the yellow core may be limonite with other oxides of iron in layers surrounding it.

Cheers

PS. Is it just me or has the forum format changed and become a narrow strip down the centre of the page???

Cheers, Pete! After a bit of internet browsing I'm certain you're indeed correct. Lot of iron stone on that beach and the exterior did make me think it might be. Just a cool shape for it. Appreciate the help!

Here's some actual fossil of the echinoid I found anyway:

The format did change temporarily. Seems back to normal now.
