Little tiny fossil

Recommended Posts

So small it was difficult to get a quality photo with my phone, but this little fragment of whatever it might be has tiny dots and circles that are quite perfect, found at myrtle beach, SC

It looks like a  little sea urchin fragment... I think it's modern and not a fossil...

 

wait for more opinions.

Me too , modern and a sea urchin shell fragment. You have some good vision to spot that.

I think it is more likely part of a crab. I've never seen echinoid shell that is black with white highlights in the Carolinas.

That was my original thought too, I have found a number of fossil and non fossil black crab claws on the same stretch of beach, however never with the pattern markings on this little piece, all of the echinoids I've found, (found one yesterday) are whitish with purple lines

Hmmm. I think you right... the intern structure of the echinoid shell are white... not black.
