Beekite Covering Fossil

This picture shows ring patterned concretions of calcite on some sort of fossil.  I picked it up because of the patterns but after looking at it closely I am curious as to what kind of fossil this is. 

The piece is about 4- 8 cm long. describes beekite as "a name given to chalcedony pseudomorphs after coral or shells."
