I've no experience on the field. The picture below is a gift given to me and I've completely forgotten what was the name of it. I think it was something like "umanite" but I don't know. It was found on Mt. Vermio in Macedonia in northren Greece.

    $\begingroup$ What sort of questions does palaeontology apply to? $\endgroup$ – user53456 Sep 3 '19 at 15:29

    $\begingroup$ Unless you are sure that this is a fossil it is not a biology question. Perhaps you can ask in Earth Science first. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Sep 3 '19 at 16:08

    $\begingroup$ Respected @AlwaysConfused I said that I'm "pretty sure" because it was given by a geologist friend back in the university as one. I doubt it was a joke as we were good friends back then. I don't know if it is microfossils as I don't have any experience on the field. $\endgroup$ – user53456 Sep 7 '19 at 17:28

    $\begingroup$ @user53456 Rock identification is a valid topic in geology. Anyway, since I am not a member of that community, I can't comment much. Palaeontology is on topic here, in my opinion. Can you post another close-up hi res image of the sample so that the identification is easier? BTW, ammonite sounds like your "umanite" but your sample doesn't look like the former (it looks like a spiral). $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Sep 9 '19 at 9:48
