So here it is!
It looks like it could be a root broken off of something.
something an Indian carved...a fossil or something like that..it looks like it has a deer head in the middle. and maybe something he smoked?
First impression was that of an open Cupressus cone: see the last image on this page
an opened conifer cone maybe Sequoiadendron or Metasequoia ?
Closer but not there yet!
The cone of a chamaecyparis of some sort?
There's a clue to be looked for in post #3 on this thread:
post # 3 showed an Aussie address, my guess is Wollemia cone?
If it is, there is a male and female cone if I am reading the stuff properly.

Some sort of gall or fungus that was growing on a plant.
You got the clue, but the wrong answer ;-)
How about the seed case of a Casuarina type?
It is a conifer cone, just not any of the species listed yet.
Callitris, but I can't say which species. The cone-scales in whorls of 3 are diagnostic.
Yay!! Right genus, at last!!
congrats Tony It still looks like it has a deer carved in the middle of it.
Anyone else? Or are you all going to throw in the towel?
Is it in the cedar family???
While rummaging around the ether net found this. May already be on somewhere as UBC is involved
