Hi all

I wondered if this was bone?

Had a femur look to it.

Any help greatly appreciated

Thanks

Fred.

Sorry, but it looks like it's composed rather of stone material than bone.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

the resemblance to a femurs shape is really nice, what makes me join the others in seeing no bone is the texture. The slim "neck" of the piece appears to be of a more granular material, apparently softer than the "head" and thus eroded to the shape you see. In most cases you can spot fossil bones by their textures.

Best regards,

J
