Also, it seems implausible that a person would

find such a fossils on a corestone.

 

A paper about real fossil seahorse can found in:

 

Teske, P.R. and Beheregaray, L.B., 2009. Evolution

of seahorses' upright posture was linked to

Oligocene expansion of seagrass habitats. Biology

letters, p.rsbl20090152. (Open Access)

Yours,
