Found these this morning at low tide Walcott beach Norfolk UK. The larger black rock has shiney small goldish flakes within it but what baffled me more was the apparent wirey features that surround and entwine the rock itself? Any help to identify either would be great.

Hello Lee, the frst 2 photos are of the partial internal cast of an echinoid (sea urchin). The 3rd, 4th I think is a pebble with very fine strands of a seaweed covering it. Can you lift the strands off by usng a needle or similar?

Thanks for the reply. With regard to the strands, no they're almost metallic looking and go into the rock. You cant lift them off.

Looks like wood, with pyrite running along the shrinkage cracks.
