This flint was collected from a pile of excavated material in Guildford High Street. Its form is thought to be as a result of a semi-liquid silaceous material filling up cavities in chalky bedrock, where it solidified.
Like fossils often found nearby, it is between sixty-six and two-hundred million years old.
Many of Henry Moore's sculptures can be seen to harmonize with this natural formation.
The shadows of the flint made by the sun created an inspiring study.
