Hello. 
Picked this up today in North Cumbrian river. Sure I've seen similar before, and probably nothing special but actually have no idea what it is. No obvious lookalikes on Google images, so here I am!
Thanks  IMG_20200816_193831.jpg  IMG_20200816_193811.jpg  IMG_20200816_193756.jpg

Its definitely a coral, though i could find a match. Its a really nice specimen, we'd have kept it!

It's Siphonodendron sp., a branching rugose coral from the lower Carboniferous. Probably partly silicified which is why it's weathered out like that. It's a bit fractured and broken up on the side where the corallites aren't round - it's not uncommon to see them like that.
