    I think it is a piece of quartzite, or quartz-rich sandstone, with a burrow (trace fossil).

    It is too irregular, and lacks some particular features, to be a crinoid stem (to mention something else that is tubular in shape).

     

    If you are not familiar with trace fossils, there's a lot to learn; try here.
