What is this?

I found this very small thing on my fossil of two ichthyosaur rib bones. It's very shiny.

 

It is From Jurassic sediment (200 million years old) at Lavernock, South Wales, U.K.

Could be a fish scale.

I agree, it looks like a fish scale. Although, I haven't seen one exactly like that before. :popcorn:

Whatever it is, it could be that pyrite makes it shiny?

I’d say that is definitely a fish scale, but I have no idea what species. Hopefully someone can chime in who knows.
