I am new to fossil hunting/collecting and also new to the UK Fossils Network and discussion forum so I hope my first posting pans out OK.  Could anyone please tell me what I found in Llangollen on 17th May.  I do have more photos of my finds but these two intrigue me the most.
Many thanks in anticipation

From what I can see they both look like crinoid (sea lilly) ossicles ie the plates that make up the stems and arms. Well spotted!

In view of what you have already told me are these also crinoid parts ?

I'm fairly sure the second one is a coral too.

Hi,
 

I cant see anything crinoidal in the very first pic,it seems more mineral than organic.The second and third pics are little problematical too. I agree the remaining pics are coral specimens.

 

Cheers

I think there is a bit of crinoid stem at the bottom of the first one but it looks like the rest of it is covered with tufa.
