is this a fossil? grid shape

Recommended Posts


About 5cm diameter, found on a beach in Midt-Jylland, Denmark (not far from Ebeltoft).


The grid-like shape, is it some kind of leaf?20230730_142739.thumb.jpg.dc4e4e8df0ad804d0dabffdec5d0cb80.jpg20230730_142733.thumb.jpg.c47a5f75cc4cd39f6235421594ccb121.jpg20230730_142726.thumb.jpg.83314a62367db5b5e91816602df1dfba.jpg20230730_142721.thumb.jpg.6ce13ad23e39a308a17a6c359dad9c76.jpg

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Scale would be nice, picture quality is fine.

I think this is a fragment of an echinoid (sea urchin.)

Others may be able to tell you more .

Best Regards,

Thank you! Looking at other echinoid (flint) fossil pictures they do look similar. I'll post if i can find a ruler.

I agree with Mahnmut. This is a piece of a flint echinoid. One can see the periproct and ambulacrum in the last photo.
