Jurassic coast bone??

Recommended Posts

Hi I found this on the beach in Dorset UK. The sediments are maritime Jurassic. I think it is a bone but I've no idea what from or even if it is a bone at all. It has the surface texture of bone and is hollow through as you can see. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jo

It's a flint or chert nodule, the bone texture is the crust. I can't see clearly, but the internal texture looks like it might have formed around a sponge.
