    UK flint microfossil

    This is a sponge(?) microfossil in a fragment of a flint nodule. The flint has been quarried from the south of the British coast, which is mainly Cretaceous strata. It looks slightly like it's an imprint, but, upon further inspection, it is a broken off membrane. Currently (and slightly embarrassingly) I have only whittled it down to Echinodermata... I know, I know, spare me your applause, while my PhD's waiting! More sincerely, if anyone could shed some brighter light upon this, I'd be very grateful!
  2. Hello everyone, i found a flint ball in my field approximately 8 cm diameter, in Corfu island in north-western Greece, around 500 meters from the sea. I opened it and the enterior is like in the photo. Apart from the big cavity at the center, there are also many wholes around with red soil inside. Is the big cavity a fossil sponge? If yes, when is approximately dated? Thank you

    An imprint of dinosaur underwear?

    Hullo everyone. This was picked up on a beach in East Ruston, Norfolk, UK. The parent rock is flint, I think, as is most of the rock on that beach. The rock carries a textured feature in a hollow. I didn't have anything other than that 18mm (~3/4 inch) 5p coin for scale. The feature appears to be mineral. It can be chipped out with a blade and the fragments are gritty. It's probably humdrum but I'd like to understand what I've found so thanks to everyone for looking.
  4. Hey guys, the first one actually doesn't looks like a cephalopod, maybe part of a trilobite (from the Baltic coast)? 2. This flint remembers me of something from the bottom of the sea. Any Idea? Thanks in advance!
  5. So i find alot of flint in my local spot. But they are pretty big. Flint is super hard. I read about flint knapping. Will this be useful to reveal fossils? If Not what hammers and chisels will help?

    What is this?

    Anyone knows what this is? Found in flint
  7. Danzka

    What's that - plant or animal?

    My little son ist asking. It's limestone or flint. I'm not sure. Found at the beach, Baltic Sea. Plant or animal (or else)? Thank you!

    fossilised nut?

    Found this little fossil in chert/flint gravel, and heard a rattling. Upon breaking open, there was a smaller lighter coloured fossil inside, leading me to believe it is some sort of nut. It has what looks to be a scar at the bottom, possibly for attaching? it split neatly along the line into two parts.

    flints or something more interesing?

    Hi We found these and picked them up on the basis they dont look anything like the flints in this ground. So not what they might be, any info would be appreciated like the other finds these were in a shallow valley in east suffolk under 1.5m of flinty sand and on top of or in the top layer of heavy grey clay with some chalk and slint in it.

    second find

    We found this in a pond we have dug on the site of an old pond at the juncture between the clay infill and the undisturbed clay under the old pond. depth 1.75m. Heavy clay with flint and chalk in it location Suffolk on boulder clay in the bottom of a very shallow valley I thought it was man made as it was so detailed but my my son and friend think it is a fossil so here are the pictures against a ruler showing inches and centimeters
  11. Found on Jurassic coast in Osmington Bay.

    Isle of Wight - flint ID, Echinoid?

    Found this little flint nodule in the stream below Blackgang Chine, halfway down the coastal landslip there. It has very distinct little pimples in a conical hollow that finishes in a flat surface. It looks very reminiscent of Echinoids, but different to any I’ve seen before. I believe the local strata are gault clay topped with greensand formation. Any ideas? Cheers!

    Is this a fossil?

    Found this in my front garden today and it feels like flint but looks like a tooth of some sort
  14. Becky Benfer

    What’s on the bottom of this ?

    I believe it’s a flint core because it feels really soft and smooth. I love it’s look but when I look at the end of it there’s a golden color (please tell me it’s gold)! I’m sure it’s not .... haha... it won’t wash off or scratch off easily. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! Found in Ohio in a field ,in North central area.
  15. Hi people. I am an amateur fossil hunter and I have come across this flint on my local beach. I don't expect it to be anything special but I'd like to learn more about it if you all would be kind enough to share some of your hard acquired knowledge. Unfortunately I know next to nothing in regards to the specimen so I'm relying on you guys to give me a start. Located on a the Sheringham, Norfolk, England beach after some large stormy seas Other common finds in this area are belemnites but of a orangery brown colour I hope this is enough to giv

    Help with identity

    I'd be grateful for advice on this item found high on the South Downs in West Sussex, England.. The Downs are chalk, the item found Flint. I would like to know if this is a fracture pattern or a fossil bivalve - or something else altogether. The surface is corrugated.
  17. Hi to Forum members; I am an amateur rock collector who likes to look for fossils. For the most part I have not found anything fantastic but I am hopeful. I kindly request any information and or comments about a recent flint specimen from my back garden in Ipswich, Tuddenham Road. I have other photos of the flint that show unusual structures. On those photos, I used my photo app to adjust the exposure to get more fine detail. If it will help, I would gladly share. Also from my back garden, I found a petrified seed/pod/nut shell. Can someone help me identify what it is

    Cretaceous marine thing?

    This came from the beach at Dumpton Gap in Kent. The site is mostly cretaceous chalk with bands of flint and produces sea urchins but I don't know what this is. My suspicion is sponge but I may have to stand in pseudes corner with my face to the wall.
  19. A recent acquisition that I bought just because it's beautiful. Impressions of cidarids crop up quite often in Cretaceous flint but I've never been lucky enough to find one (and I live in the wrong area). Probably Temnocidaris sp., Upper Cretaceous, Santonian, Kent coast, southern England. Test fragment 13mm across

    Help

    Found this while working in chalk pit in Kent, can you help me identify this as this is my first fossil find, also should i chip off the white crystally covering to reveal whole fossil many thanks
  21. Picked this up on the beach today. I'm still a noob, but having lived in East Sussex for a few months I've become pretty adept at identifying our local fossils (if it isn't a sea urchin, it's a sponge), but this new thing has me stumped! Initially I thought it was some kind of coral, then on further inspection I thought maybe the top part of an ammonite (or mollusc) shell. Now I'm coming back round to thinking it might be an echinoid, but I can't explain the strut-like structures (surely not spines!?). The Details This was found on the beach near Rottingdean, East Suss

    Marine Fossils in Flint

    Hi to all you fossil guys, I’ve been dealing in and collecting antique microscope slides for many years, so I am familiar with viewing micro fossils and and fossil sections under the microscope, but the specimens on the slide seen in the attached image were a real eye-opener to me. I had no idea such incredible three-dimensional detail could be preserved, amber-like, in flint. My question is, is this type of preservation is common? The slide is the standard 3”x1” size. A location for the specimen is sadly lacking, but certainly somewhere in the UK. I look

    Flint fossil ID

    Hi, am totally new to fossils but came across this in the corner of a farm field in Surrey, England, UK. Was wondering if anyone could ID it for me? Thanks!
  24. I am not sure if this is authentic but I picked it up with a large lot of fossils. How do I find out?

    Imprint on the stone

    Please help identify the animal / plant imprint. Stone - flint, the territory where it was found - was once the Sarmatian Sea. The imprint is like a starfish, but there is doubt
