My first post!

I found this on the beach.  5cms long, quite dense.  It was from an East Anglian beach recently recharged with material from the North Sea that contains Eocene, Pleistocene and what we called "whalebone" when we found it on Walton-on-the-Naze beach.  Mammoth, horse, woolly rhino and auroch teeth and bones are common finds, but this piece is different and distinctive.  In cross-section, it is triangular with darker plates forming an arch (though it may be incomplete).

Any ideas what it can be?  Thanks, John rr.

Hello johnrr and welcome to the forum.
To me this looks like a wholely mineral specimen, but I have no idea what it is or where it could have come from! A geologist would be your best bet.
