Hi, first time here.

My 10 year old daughter found this fossil in a river in Ilkley yorkshire.
Can any one help us in identifying what it is.

Many thanks. 😊 Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200526_221858.jpg, Views: 38, Size: 365.54 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200526_104040.jpg, Views: 38, Size: 367.51 KB

Hi, you have found the fossil of a coral, and being in Yorkshire is most likely Carboniferous so something like 360 - 300 million years old. Someone more familiar with the area may be able to identify the actual type of fossil.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Martyn is correct, this is a small pebble containing corals worn to show a couple of sections through them.

Hopefully TqB will see this post but in the meantime google images of Syphonodendron and Diphyphyllum.
