Possible Bone Fossil, Folkestone UK

Recommended Posts

Spectrum

Hello, 

 

I found this yesterday in Folkestone and was wondering if anyone can help identify whether or not it is a fossil. It is 11cm long, 4 cm wide. It seems to be fully mineralised, it pings like flint when knocked on something hard. 

 

Thanks

I think it's an ironstone concretion 

I found many odd shaped concretions at Folkestone

Thanks for the help. I bet £10 with my girlfriend that it is a Fossil :doh!: The search continues.

It looks like a sandstone concretion, maybe similar to "sand spike".
