Ball Shaped Object Found In Flint
Posted 24 May 2013 - 04:10 PM
I found a ball shaped object in flint with my young son and we were both curious as to what it could be.
It is round, came out in one piece when I hit the flint with a hammer and it has uniform hexagonal shapes across the top with rows of indentations. I hope the image is OK? Of not I can get more..

Araucaria1959 is correct. It would have originated from the Upper Chalk once apon a time. Nice find.

If pyrite is fool's gold, then marcasite must be fool's pyrite.
