Iy appears to be something that is permineralized. It does not really look like the petrified wood I have seen but I have just seen bigger chunks.
It could be a concretion formed from a cavity that filled with minerals from an old root that rotted, then hardened into a solid piece after filling.
It almost looks like it could be some sort of amber like material, is there amber in your area?
It's hard to identify something by a picture alone, you may have to bring it to someone locally who knows about local minerals and fossils. I do know
quite a bit about rocks, I used to collect some with my uncle many decades ago and have his collection in the basement. Sometimes concretions form
and it appears it may be a concretion, but what it is made of is kind of hard to determine. Was this found in a clay layer?
It doesn't look like one of those things that forms when lightning strikes the beach, they tend to be rough and look like branches, I have found
pieces of some of those in the sand over the years.
