Hello everyone, i’m new to this site but I’ve caught the fossil hunting bug! I am lucky enough to live close to Fraisthorpe on the Holderness coast and go a few times a week usually, here are a few fossils (and oddities) that I have found recently! Any ID’s welcome especially on this green thing!

The first ammonites is (dactylioceras Sp.) I think. The next three pictures are quite hard to see however I think it is the ammonite (androgrynoceras Sp.) . Now onto the finger like rock which I believe is just a lone piece of flint and isn’t a fossil (flint can be very deceiving). No idea on the wine bottle fragment. Not agreed on the species of the beautiful pyrite ammonite. The green thing looks man made, it also looks rather glass like because it has been chipped a bit, can you shine a torch through it and see the light on the other side? The final bit is a wonderful section of a ammonite (probably harpoceras). If you want to find some different types of fossils, pop down to Hayburn Wyke, all the information is on the uk fossils website you can get wonderful fossil ferns there which are quite abundent and easy to find.
Nice fossils for a beginner. 😀

Thanks for the response and ID’s! Really appreciate it as I’m trying to learn to tell the difference between the fossils I find and what I’m looking for. I did think it might just be a piece of flint (Sorry about that!). Can’t shine a torch through the green thing but it’s too light to be glass. It’s has some little fossilized shells in it too which also seemed strange. I have some other pyrite ammonites too somewhere, quite often find whole ones at Fraisthorpe, but quite often trapped in really hard rock. The last one I didn’t have the tape measure to hand but is about 7inches in length. I’ll definitely get myself to Hayburn Wyke :) Thanks again!
