It's a Belemnite, part of an extinct squid like marine creature. So yes a fossil, but not a tooth.

Hello and welcome both of you to the forum. This is indeed a fossil, but not a tooth I'm afraid. It is the tip of an extinct marine animal called a belemnite. These are distantly related more to the cuttlefish and octopus living today but do look like squid. Could you say where it was found and it's size? It always helps to include ascale in photos (a ruler is best) and say where it was found.

Hello, your both right and wrong; it is a fossil, but not a tooth.
It is the tip of a belemnite; part of an internal skeleton of an ancient squid.

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hi, it's a belemnite, an extinct squid like creature. It's an internal support much like a cuttlefish "bone".

Hi and welcome to the forum.

It is indeed a fossil, the pointed (rear) end of a belemnite which was part of the internal skeleton of a squid-like creature. They're often very common and were the first fossils that got me hooked!

Glad to see everyone agrees. [biggrin] Having posts moderated is fine but can make for a certain amount of redundancy when people don't get to see responses for a few hours. 😉
