Lovely piece of flint. Wonder if it’s a Flint-Lock striker ? But don’t know how big they are.
Oxgirl136 posted one not so long ago. If she sees your post, she may be able to confirm.

A pic with measurements of the item would be a good help. Your thumb isn’t really much help :D

It could just be a prized possession of a Neolithic lady who also thought it was pretty. Very nice ‘eyes only’ find. Just proves you gotta keep them peepers open ::g

Wrong shape for a flintlock striker viewtopic.php?t=106479

Looks like potentially a fossilised something though. Need more pics of both sides (with scale) ::g

Hi, Thanks for your replies ,I took about 10 photos but had trouble loading them onto the post,then I discovered the instructions on the menu on the left but by that time it was getting too late. I don’t have the time to post the other photos at the moment but I will do this evening,I took the other photos with a ruler so it gives the dimensions,it is a curious little thing,it looks like it was attached to something on the back side of it. I did read the site etiquette regarding posting photos,so I apologise for this poor effort but I just ran out of steam lol,but thank you very much for your interest and comments 👍

It looks like a fossil. Have a look at belemnites but others may have a better idea.

Hi oxgirl,thanks for your help ,the back of this piece has been worked to attach to something or other and appears to be broken so it may have been longer, I hope these new photos are acceptable,cheers
