Ammonite_or_day
This find was picked up from a river bed in North Yorkshire, near Bolton Abbey. The surrounding rock is mostly limestone, but I'm unsure of what the fossil actually is - or if it is even a fossil at all.
Any input would be greatly appreciated, I'm relatively new to this!

Hello, the shape is intriging, but I do not see any bone (color and/or structure), so I am afraid it is just a limestone lookalike...

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Yes, a weathered, eroded stone.

Thanks for the input! In that case, do you have any tips on what I should be looking for (in terms of colour/structure) to differentiate between fossilised bone and simply an interesting rock?

I agree, think its sadly no more then a odd shaped rock.
