This was found in northern Florida. I thought it was a claw core, as it is definitely not a tooth. However, now I am thinking antler tine. I would love some opinions on if that's correct!

:headscratch:I'm not seeing the texture of bone of either type here. I'm not sure how else to explain the shape though.

Has to be a fossil then ? The almost fibrous texture being filled with minerals.

It does seem to be more mineralized than other antler tines, however not nearly as much as the fossil antlers I have found which are rock solid and much denser. It’s quite odd!
