Looks like a couple of echinoid spine, attachment tubercles.
Cheers, Bill

Dear all
Just wanted to share the beauty and variety of these tiny shells and fragments that made up a large part of one of the beaches in Crete I visited some 10 years ago. Could these be fossils ?
Regards
Joydip

hi Gary

Around 40-50x magnified roughly, judged by individual size of fragments against photos.

They look modern to me, if for no other reason than the beautiful colours remain. Very pretty though, i spy a few echinoid fragments in there as well.
Thanks

Thanks Dave
There are a few purple echinoid fragments in there that look great under high magnification. I am also delighted with the miniscule complete spiral shells.

I never imagined  there could be so much beauty in 'grains of sand'. Hope to take a few more shots soon and post them. Cheers.

Very unusual and amazing amalgamation of shells and material. Is that a fish vert and inch on from the left side roughly centre in the photo?
Have a nice day :0)
