Hello Sam, It is quite difficult to ID fossils from 2D photographs at the best of times. Could you retake the photos in natural daylight (no flash), with a ruler for scale (sorry, I have no idea what type of spoon that is, nor what the other object is) remembering to take all aspects (views) of the object, as close as possible but in sharp focus.

Sorry it was all I had at the time, it was a teaspoon and a birthday candle but here are some clearer photos with a ruler for scale:

I have to say, the photos are still not great, but I have tweaked a couple (below). I'm afraid after all that effort, I'm 90% sure that they are not natural and certainly not fossils, but probably some kind of slag from an industrial process.

Hi Sam,
Looks like a cone-in-cone structure to me.
