Peculiar bone-like beach find

Found this on Holkham beach in Norfolk, photos below. At first sight I thought it was a bean sprout which had been dropped by someone but it's completely rigid. It's about 15mm in diameter. The base is rough like bone or some kind of shell whilst the strange tip is glassy, like hard plastic. It's hollow with thin walls - if I shine light through the hole in the bottom, it illuminates a spot on the wall from the inside. It's vaguely symmetrical but not as much as I'd expect from a bone, unless it has been bashed and worn down a bit. Any ideas? Thanks
