I was wondering if anybody could tell me whether or not this object I found at Happisburgh in Norfolk UK is a sea rolled weathered bone fragment or a weathered rock? Help and advice would be much appreciated

Pictures 1 & 2 look boney. :dinothumb:

 

The brush & dust pan and trash can on right side add a nice touch to the photos.:hearty-laugh:

Thanks for the help, oh yeah ha the bins there incase it is rock and will end up in the bin haha. The sample is very dense if it is bone I would assume from a large animal.

I am not as sure this is bone. The end pictures do not look like bone to Me, but they are blurred making it hard to be sure.

Please retake the end pictures while the object is on a solid surface with bright light (no flash).

Thank You.

If I can chose between fossil bone and rock, I'll chose the latter. :(

Looks more like a mica schist than a bone.

Sorry but it is not a fossil as far as I can see.

Probably should have left the "mica" out.

I see a lot of this type of rock in the river gravels around Me (central sierra nevada mountains.)
