opal fossil, what is it?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I was hoping that someone could help me identify this bone? its from the mid-Cretaceous Griman Creek Formation of Lightning Ridge Australia

 

I don't think its a yabby button or turtle shell, as the piece is not rounded like a yabby button and there is bone texture. the piece is bilaterally symmetrical and there appear to have joins or groves where the bone meets. The underside is not flat like I would expect for turtle shell... 

 

Looking forward to your replies

 

Rod

There doesn't appear to be enough to make any kind of reasonable guess, beyond opalized chunkosaur.

Not that rare of an event. I never claimed to know bone very well (and am often wrong when I try to identify pieces).:doh!:

I don’t think there is enough material to come up with an ID. Just my 2 cents. Basically what @Fossildude19 said lol.
