Hello and welcome to the forum. You have picked up a pebble of limestone fro the Carboniferous period ~300 - 360 million years ago which includes setions of s tabulate coral called Siphonodendron. probably S. junceum.

I agree with Colin it's Siphonodendron (actually a rugose coral, not tabulate). At 5mm or so, the corallites look a little large for S. junceum, which is usually between 2.5 and a bit less than 4.0. A photo of it wetted might help to pin it down.
