 There's bone material there? looks like the impression of a large bivalve in flint.

it appears to be bone(if you look at the end it pic 2,u can see bone) i thought it was bivalve too..maybe there is bone in the matrix aswell?

Hi

Agree with others that this is a bivalve fossil

Bone is rarely preserved in flint.

The orange material on the end looks like marcasite.
