This was found in southeastern Georgia, USA. The striations are confusing on the exterior with bands of dark and light. We think it is a tooth. Small inset in picture is cross-section. Pen for scale.

I don't know what this is. I don't think it is a tooth. It is tooth shaped but it is very large for a tooth, even a large t-rex tooth which would be shaped differently. Sorry I can't be more help on this.
