Hi there, I've never come across a fossil like this one, it goes straight through a rock, the width being about 3.5cm. The diameter of the fossil itself is about 2/2.5cm. Found in Seaham beach, which is in the north east of the UK. So the North Sea. Any help greatly appreciated, I have a six year old who doesn't know why I dont know what it is Haha.

Hi everyone, We found this unusual looking ?fossil? at Seaham in the shoreline. The pattern on it is striking but what was unexpected is that it is on both sides. The whole item is about 2 inches thick and curved. It looks like the pattern on it is quite worn but is still visible. My first thought was is was bark of some kind as I know plant fossils are common at Seaham but when I discovered it was both sides I joked that it looked more like part of a body of a fish. I would appreciate any input - probably nothing that exciting. Photos show each side of the item.
