Hi everyone
I picked this boulder up at Sandsend and I’m just wondering wether I just gave my self a good workout getting it to the car or is it bone.
Thanks in advance

Picture 4 shows what could be bone. Let's see if anyone else knows.

Hello Rob, I'm pretty certain that it's a Septarian nodule which MIGHT contain a fossil (is that an amonite keelin photo5)? There is a very small pssibility that some of the darker material is bone (can you see any 'honeycome effect)? I assume it is still near the beach, so I would give it some taps withthe hammer. Please use a scale in all photos.

Pic 4 looks a bit wooden to me. Septarian nodule with log maybe.

Thanks for your input everyone, I think there may be a bit of wood in there but at the end of the day all I got out of this was a good workout in probably the most scenic gym in the world 👍
Cheers Rob
