To me, this just looks like an oddly shaped calcite mineral, or an agate. Not seeing any bone here.

 

I might be wrong.

The granular texture does look like cave flowstone (calcite)

Mineral

In the idea that it might be a proximal or distal end of a bone, the left and right parts of it would not look like broken parts of something that should have lateral continuity. Speleothems could be very tricky in their form. I've often seen that pattern in cave formations in my country, so I agree with the others.
