Hello all, Iā€™m very new here and am interested to see if anybody is able to help me identify these two items I found in a fresh chalk cliff fall recently in Sussex , close to Beacy Head.
These items are very heavy, non magnetic and have a slight lustrous and fibrous patteration to them .
Any help greatfully received šŸ™‚

Hello Bognut and welcome to the forum. Rolo is quite correct in saying that these are Marasite nodules from the chalk.
