Help identifing shark tooth fossil

We found this shark tooth fossil and wondered what type of shark and how old it could be. This was found on Casey Key beach FLA.

Looks like bone that happens to be shaped very suggestively

My favorite things about fossil hunting: getting out of my own head, getting into nature and, if I’m lucky, finding some cool souvenirs.

Even teeth I've found with all of the enamel worn off haven't had that texture.  They are normally very polished.

Cropped, brightened, and rotated.
No enamel present. Must be bone.
