I found this fossil on the beach in the area of south Lebanon.
Could it be a sponge fossil? This particular one was about 10cm in length (and there were many more laying around the shore with some exceeding 40cm in length).

Hi Marc, I think I need a location (town, villlage etc) where you are finding these. Not a lot of information available to me but is it chalk? The location could be anything from Jurassic to Pilocene 2.5 !200 million years! I woul!d like to narrow it down!

Could it be a pumice stone. Have a go at rubbing the hard skin on your feet with it.....
