Need An Id From Mineral Wells, Texas.

My cousin's son found this when we went there last month within the first 3 minutes of us arriving. At first I thought it was some sort of shark tooth but now I'm not so sure. It is about the size of a US nickel. I don't have it in my possession so the only thing I have to go by are these pictures. That is if it works. post-13945-0-08714400-1403379075_thumb.jpgpost-13945-0-64250400-1403379081_thumb.jpgpost-13945-0-22453400-1403379089_thumb.jpgpost-13945-0-24848200-1403379093_thumb.jpgpost-13945-0-04264100-1403379097_thumb.jpg

Anyone know by chance?

It looks trilobity, but I can't quite figure out the angle.

It reminds me of the attachment end of a crinoid axial plate spine with the tip broken off.
