May be a bone, but strange enamel on it.

Another first for me. Whatever it is it seems to be complete. I thought maybe some kind of bone but there is a very enamel like sheen on both sides of it. Sort of an hourglass figure to it.

 

About an inch and a half long. Myrtle Beach, 2022.

 

ideas?

thanks!

Definitely seems to be a toe bone. The "enamel" you are seeing seems to be the outer (cortical) surface of the bone that has been polished (possibly river or surf polish). The action of water and fine sand can buff up quite a shine on bone that is solid enough.

 

 

Cheers.
