Found by a tribal member at the Gay Head Cliffs along the shoreline. The only suggestion I've heard so far is cycad. Any ideas? (My photos are too large to insert more than one...I can create a link to more if wanted...)
About 3"X2"X1.25" Found in a friend's yard, a friend who collects fossils. He doesn't remember where he got it. But it is most likely from the Miocene Greeensands of the Gay Head Cliffs, and represents some bone of a marine mammal. The end is extremely smooth and shiny, looks a lot like a bone. It is a heavy chunk of rock. A seal bone? Small whale? This 1934 study is the best reference that I've found for the 100-million year old geology of the Gay Head Cliffs where bones of a camel and a horse were found in a glacial era deposit, and many marine fossils have been found in the greensands. https://archive.org/stream/mobot31753003559371/mobot31753003559371_djvu.txt
