Found this fossil on Amelia Island, Florida. Can some help identify? We are new to fossil hunting but I’m thinking the edge of a turtle shell?

Neat coloration! The shape and the alternating glossy bands/ridges look more like a fragment of a very worn porcupine fish tooth plate to me...

Have fun collecting more!

A couple of pictures for comparative purposes...

Nice photo, Chris.  I am saving it and likely will reuse it.   It could be an example photo appropriate to attaching to a fossil ID requests for small fossils
