I don’t know the name

(California, San Jose, found fossil in Carmel California )

Hi, my name is josh and I live in San Jose California. I went to Carmel recently and found this on the beach. Can you tell me what it is? I accidentally dropped it and turns out there is a geo inside! If you could identify this for me that would be great, Thanks!

I can't tell you the name of your find. It looks like some kind of shellfish. It could be a barnacle. The outside picture resembles barnacle but it could be a broken edge of something else.
