Hello! I am new to the forum and I am no expert whatsoever! Could anyone tell me if my beach findings are just pebbles or maybe something more? Photo 1 and 3 have been found in Weymouth whilst the rest in Hastings. I have added a 10p coin for scaling. I am pretty sure the last one is nothing but it does look like a tooth 😁 and I think I do have an echinoid imprint? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi Maria and welcome,

The second pic is indeed a couple of echinoid tubercles (what the spines would be attached to) preserved in flint.

The 4th pic looks like a shell fragment that could be modern.

I don't think the others are fossils, but miscellaneous flint or other rock fragments.

The first one could be an inoceramid (bivalve) hinge.

Thank you both!! Yes the first one looks organic and the hinge of a bivalve is a good option! X
