Hello and welcome to the forum. This might be a fossil, but we would need some more info as it doesn't look like it's from Cornish strata. Wheere exactly was it found? Could you please take photos in natural light from all angles and with (preferably ) a ruler for scale in all photos.

No problem. Found at Loe Bar, shale beach near Penzance. Could have come from lake side or sea side, not sure.  Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200819_190135.jpg, Views: 12, Size: 135.19 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200819_190122.jpg, Views: 13, Size: 138.39 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200819_190108.jpg, Views: 16, Size: 148.59 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200819_190057.jpg, Views: 15, Size: 121.60 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200819_190046.jpg, Views: 13, Size: 163.64 KB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20200819_190032.jpg, Views: 13, Size: 80.07 KB

I think it is inorganic origin, crystal band in a rock,
