Here's another of my recent finds, this time a pebble from Barton-on-Sea.
Is this a crinoid ? Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Hi All
 Joy,  I would say almost certainly it looks like a smoooth worn piece of crinoid stem nice find. Regards to all who share the passion Mudbug...

Hi 

This is an interesting pebble

Is it made of flint and from the gravel at the top of the Barton Clay? 

If so, then it may be a banded flint.

Thanks Mudbug2 and Richard.
I found the pebble washed ashore with the incoming tide in the late afternoon. I climbed to the top of the Barton clay but found nothing in the clay ) :..maybe next time....
There were lots of shells though in between the pebbles on the beach. I collected a few.

I agree with Richard, itƒâ€š‚´s banded flint.
Crinoid stems donƒâ€š‚´t usually divide across a hole.
Still very beautiful, I love banded flint...
