Fossil sponge and date identification


Recommended Posts

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

There are no any crystals inside..


Thanks for your answer

I see crystals inside. At any rate, this has no noticeable sponge anatomy (or any fossil anatomy for that matter).
