Hey everyone, I'm new to this but I was hoping to get your help with an ID for this fossil..

I found it and several neat things diving the Edisto River in SC this past weekend.

Let me know if you need any better pics.

Thanks - Kniero

Perhaps outdoor (natural) lighting would help. Indoors offer to much shadowing.

It appears to be a minor loph of an unerupted mastodon tooth. . . that is, an enamel shell of such a loph. I say unerupted because such a loph should be filled with dentin when the tooth is fully developed.

I agree. It looks like part of a mastodon tooth to me. Cool find.

In these brighter images, it appears that the enamel shell is MOL filled in with dentin.
