Nice fossil tentacle but from what?

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired this very lovely fossil tentacle with amazing color and nicely prepped. I just cannot figure out from what specimen this could be from, or even if it is real. I believe it is legit because it has some crystallized aspects and if it's fake it is a very good one!

It's a Dr. Who Krynoid leg.

For the sake of clarity, it's not a tentacle but the cast of a shell.
