What is it?

Hi All

Found this on the Holderness coast a long time ago and I was wondering if it was a seed pod?

Looks to be in millstone grit and is about 6cm in length.

Thank you for having a look.

    Tabfish,

     

    I'm thinking the network is veins unrelated to the original organic object (like the pale veins in coal or near-coal fossils).

    So, ignoring that, I see only the overall shape, which could just as well be a piece of fossilized wood as a seed pod.

    Hi ,

     

     

    I don't think it is in the Millstone grit because that tends to be darker, and it is from the carboniferous period- not from the jurassic.

     

     

    I am almost sure it is a plant stem.  I think seed pod could be a possobility, but it looks more like stem to me.  There is a rock formation which I think it is but I have forgot the name.

     

     

    I'll find out.

    Hi,

     

     

    I think it's from the middle jurassic sandstone formation- that's the only sandstone on the Yorkshire Coast.  It may say a more specific name on the Yorkshire geological map
