Find from Isle of Sheppey, London Clay, Lower Eocene

Hi everyone,


I picked this up last week on the Isle of Sheppey, this is from the coastal London Clay deposits and although I've asked other more experienced fossil hunters online for opinions I've failed to come up with any solid suggestions as to what this might be.


The reason why I picked it up is because of the shape and the striated patterns which suggested some form of fossilised organic deposit to me, but I appreciate that it could also be a naturally occurring mineral formation (mud clast has been suggested but the little I've found on them doesn't really resemble what I have).


I've tried cleaning more of the hardened clay off the piece, but that has proved quite difficult especially as I have no specialised gear for it and I did manage to damage a piece of the structure at the top and as such I've stopped fiddling with it further, just in case it may be something worth keeping/etc.


Would appreciate any suggestions, even tentative as to what this might be.


Thank you!
