what's that? plant? animal?

I found this fossil in central Albania in the Mount Tomorri area in about 2000 meters above sea level. Im really curious what creature it is (was). the rock looks as if there are two stems of "the thing" imbeded in it. the whole rock is 10 cm in diameter. DSC00085.JPG Any ideas?DSC00001 (2).JPG

    hi

    i think that this is not a fossil, but a mineral crystal formation of calcite. i have seen very unusual shapes made by these crystals that look the same as this. the crystals could have filled in a borrow of some kind, dug out by some sea animal, but i think its unlikely. bad luck on the fossil... but it still looks cool!
