It sure looks like a pestel, for grinding acorn meal in a stone mortar, but because of the hollow end, I don't think it is. Did you find it in among a lot of beach cobbles, or was it off by itself?

On a pile of beach rocks. there was a lot of beach glass on this beach probably due to recent storm activity. Lots of big piles of rocks, etc.

I go along with it not being a pestel, maybe some type of sea shell that has been covered with a stone matrix:dontknow:It still is a cool find.
