an assortment from Seaford and Newhaven beaches.
a very bright orange/red one & I thought maybe the one onthe torch is carnelian ?
Thank you. 2018-08-28 012.jpg  2018-08-28 014.jpg  2018-08-28 006.jpg  2018-08-28 007.jpg  2018-08-28 010.jpg

Hi Gerry,
More coloured bits of flint/chert all forms of SiO2 with impurities giving the nice colours.
Carnelian is a red/brown variety of chalcedony which is another form of SiO2.
I see you're on the chalk down there which would be the source of all the flint/chert.
Pete
