A shark tooth of some sort.

It's not a shark tooth but a small belemnite, possibly Coeloteuthis sp. which is quite rare. Could also be a more common Nannobelus sp. but doesn't look quite right. 

Either way, it's a nice specimen!

Personally, I'd take a belemnite like that over a shark tooth any day! [smile]
