Hello, this item (!) was found in the river bed (as pretty low at the moment - more of a stream) at Highwater in the New Forest. This area is fairly close to Emery Down and Lyndhurst. We do not know what it could be !!! Please help! Approx. 7 cm long. You can see some honeycombing inside... Diameter is about 1.5 cm

Hi
I'd suggest a dark flint pebble from the valley gravel. The more recent breakages show small scale glassy concoidal fractures. Pretty sure it's not a bone, hit it with a hammer and examine a fresh surface.......
