Rustang:

Judging by the hollow space inside, it might be fossil bone.  Where did you find it?  If you found other samples like it you might build up a case that it's bone.  It could also be an anomaly, requiring one of the experts on this forum.  Why would there be a space inside if it's not at least some sort of fossil.  Whether it's a bone or not is the question.  From the pictures you provided it nevertheless, in fact, looks like bone.

I'm pretty certain it isn't bone and I would suggesr part of a belemnite rostrum. I assume it's another farmer's field find from Essex or surrounding area?

Found at Port Mulgrave. Unfortunately there are no other sections. I was considering it to be part of a belemnite but it's much bigger than any belemnite I've found, plus the exterior is different.

Some genera can be large - I've seen a section of a 'belemnite' from the Oxford clay over 100mm in diameter!
