Hello, I recently found a few fossils on a beach and was wondering if you could help me identify them. Specifically, is it possible that the one on the right is some kind of reptile? Is there somewhere I can send them for more info?

Are these fossils - they don't look much like ones I have seen?

The right one is a limestone pebble that was quartz veins running through it. Nothing uncommon. And not a fossil, sorry!

Hi Ramsay,
                     My instincts are that the specimen on the left of your picture might have some crinoid columnals in it, although I can't swear to it. Could you tell me where the beach was that you found them on and post a close-up of the left-hand specimen?
