I found these two teeth that are somewhat similiar.  I was thinking more of shark tooth than fish but I am not sure.  It is just over 1MM.  Thanks for any feedback.

 

Tooth#1

It is a skate tooth, Raja or similar genus.

@Al Dente Wow!  Yours are much nicer.  Never saw one of them before.  Your picture quality is amazing.  I am assuming your microscope is much more advanced than my $25 one.
