Marine Fossil from Miocene


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I found this fossil while combing a fossil beach on the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. The beach is littered with fossils from the Miocene including Chesapecten jeffersonius, Ecphora gardnerae, bone fragments of all sizes, and the occasional shark tooth. This stood out to me as being an unusual bone fragment so I picked it up. It is about 3 inches or 7.62cm in length. Is this a piece of a bone or something else entirely?
