Hi. Not sure what is inside, if anything, could just be a module. Try losing the sea weed and see if the other end shows anything.

Hello, this not a fossil; it is a concretion formed by mineralrich gas seeping trough the sediment; the minerals got trapped in the sediment and so formed the concretion.
The brownish mark at one end shows the position of the gas channel.
Nice find!

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hello, your photo`s confirm my idea; if you Google: Tisoa siphonales, you can get more information about the formation of these, and other, concretions.
