Hey all, i have a few mystery items i've accumulated since getting into fossil hunting, please help me identify them or confirm them for rocks!
Found at Reighton Sands, Yorkshire Coast. Local formations in this area are Kimmeridge Clay and Speeton Clay but these were in the loose rocks on beach so likely not from here and have been smoothed off by the sea so they aren't their original shapes. The two 'blobs' on the larger rock appear to be linked together (visible in middle photo).
Port Mulgrave/Saltwick Bay, Yorkshire Coast. I'm aware that these are two different locations but we picked this up in our newbie stage before i started recording the location of where we found stuff.. We lovingly refer to this as 'The Walnut'. Other then its unusual tear drop shape it has absolutely no distinguishing features. Any ideas at all?
Saltwick Bay, Yorkshire Coast, Whitby Mudstone Formation. Picked up off the beach debris so this may not be from here, but it looks like it could be a bone to me- it has what appears to be a smooth outer with a motled marrow-like inner. It could also just be a rock!
Saltwick Bay, Yorkshire Coast, Whitby Mudstone Formation. Another thing collected off the beach meaning it may be from elsewhere. Noduley texture, heavy and showing i rusty redish colour where chipped. Now we are home I think i know what it actually is- but i'll see what you guys say first!
Saltwick Bay, Yorkshire Coast, Whitby Mudstone Formation. Another weird ball. This one appears to be have an outer iron/metal case with a stone core. It put me in mind of a musket shot. No discernable marks to identify it as a fossil. What is it?
Saltwick/Port Mulgrave, Yorkshire Coast. This another pre-location recording find, so i don't have an exact location. Judging by the colour i would guess its Chalk from Bempton/Flamborough way but thats not where i found it. Can't tell if its a bone or just a stone in the Chalk!
Thanks for looking! Let me know if you want more pictures of anything. Please let me know what you think these are!
