Hello all, I’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 🙂 Click image for larger version - Name: 03344D80-1F27-4C87-AB69-F47F41C587BB.jpeg, Views: 19, Size: 341.09 KB Click image for larger version - Name: E534A8FF-C422-4F53-A5AB-DFD6E11AB6B1.jpeg, Views: 20, Size: 493.84 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 7206C36F-FB28-453E-93A8-20A3066832F8.jpeg, Views: 18, Size: 404.14 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 93C8A724-FEA3-4897-87FD-B2825BD1E3EC.jpeg, Views: 16, Size: 428.47 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 5E31DCF8-F44D-4C2A-A103-397979688375.jpeg, Views: 16, Size: 285.88 KB

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