Concorde stage 7 turbine stator.
This blade is from the turbine (hot exhaust) side of an engine from the decommissioned Concorde supersonic passenger jet. Specifically it is the HPCST7 EGV (seventh-stage stator) blade, meaning it is a blade that is fixed to the housing of the engine, not rotating with the core. It is made of Nimonic alloy, probably Nimonic-90, one of a family of nickel-chromium super-alloys with the composition:
Ni 54% min
Cr 18-21%
Co 15-21%
Ti 2-3%
Al 1-2%
