Sponge in Flint

Almost certainly a Cretaceous sponge, preserved within a flint nodule (which formed in the Chalk around 80 million years ago)

Gone joint

Looks like it could've been a home joint my guess is around the late Jurassic period of cretaceous period, probably to a later animal maybe part of a spine not sure.

This looks like a piece of bone joint. I don't know what it is. I do think it is a fossil.
