Hi could anyone offer some advice as to whether this is a fragment of fossilised skin or just some sun baked mud or sediment. Found on the beach in Filey. Uniform thickness of about 12mm and three laminated layers, patternation on both sides of the grey substrate and reverse imprint on the underside of the darker substrate. Any help appreciated.

They are fossilised mud cracks. Skin is incredibly rare to find fossilised.
