Answered afap - Fossil bivalve shell

Today I found this strange fossil thing at Corby Glen, Lincolnshire, whilst digging through a soily bank in the garden. It is an asymmetrical heart shape with grooves running over the top in a V-shape parallel to the point. There is a deeper groove on the top running from the point to the indent of the heart. Approx 4ins x 3ins x 2ins. The grooved top has remnants of a grey layer and the underside seems to be made up of crushed shells. Could it be part of a large tooth; the grooves used for grinding (molar?)?
