I suspect it is a Enamel plate from a mammoth tooth.

The piece measures approx. 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches by .25 to .50 inches thick.

I found a nice complete (almost) mammoth tooth while snorkeling last year very close to the same spot.

I also want to thank youall for all your great work identifying so many great finds for everyone. I sure enjoy reading all the posts.

I R a newbie, started beach fossiling last winter and have become hopelessly addicted. Headed back to Wisconsin soon, sure going to miss the beach, but determined to hunt up some trilobites (sp?)post-8033-0-03872900-1363902787_thumb.jpgpost-8033-0-60796300-1363902789_thumb.jpg this spring.

I wholeheartedly agree that your find is a 'plate' from a Mammoth tooth.
