It’s lighter in weight than I would expect for a tooth of that size. Found in the Peace River in Wauchula, Florida. Thanks.

Antler tip?  Horn core tip?  It's probably too small for the later.  The photo leaves a lot to be desired.

I added some photos. Do those help?

They help a little, but I'm not an expert on fossilized bone or antler.  The end-on view of the break looks like the interior of bone/core/antler, but I'm not sure.  As to general morphology, I would say it's too small for a horn core tip.  Horn cores tend to be more robust.  It looks like the tip of a brow tine (elk) with that terminal flip.  I stand to be corrected.

It's a corroded deer antler tine tip.

when you see bone in the center you prove that it can not be a tooth.
