IMG_20200510_115716~2.jpg found this on boulder, sea defences near me.  Looks like under belly of snake or fish. It has colours etc, the chip is about an inch long.  New to this, wondered what it could be.

Hello Jason and welcome to the forum. I am not a geologist (it isn't  a fossil) but it looks like part of a nodule which has been rolled and worn by a glacier.

Yes just a nodule of some sort, not a fossil.   Fossil skin impressions have been found but are amazingly rare, I believe there are a couple of dinosaur skin impressions known but not much else.

Hi Jason,
Looks like a Carboniferous solitary coral, something like Caninia.

This new photo is making me think...... Could we have more photos (of the same good quality) but with a ruler in each photo and several aspects of the specimens please.

Hi
I agree your last photo is a worn rock, the one before a coral.

Hello Jason, the new photos 1 & 2 show a partial section and cross section of a coral.

Hi.
I agree with Colin. It’s Carboniferous in ages, so 350 million years old. Something like Caninia, although my coral expert is currently off in the garden somewhere!
