Evening all,

I would love some help with a strange find from Port Mulgrave.






It's soft in texture and would mark clothing if rubbed on it, like chalk, It looks organic to me.
This is my 1st stop for ID as I wouldn't know what to google.

We also found a dog called Jenna at the top of the cliffs, we found out later she belongs to the farm on the Cleveland way just outside Staithes and she does a runner often.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Carcer,

This is probably one of the most asked about pseudo-fossils...

It is called "cone-in-cone" structure, hereƒâ€š‚´s a link with some explanations :

Thanks so much, explains it all.
The pictures in the link you provided are exactly the same as the surrounding rock.
