Could someone help me figure out what this is?

 SCratch it on the inside of a porcelain toilet tank lid and tell us the color of the "streak" it leaves( if any).

 If it doesn't streak red or brown, the next step would be to grind a "window" on the side that's least cone shaped.  Usually diamond tools are necessary... YOu might try a tile saw.

That type of feature can indicate the flight orientation(if a space rock)... The " cone" being the side towards the direction of flight( if a space rock and if it oriented itself in the same general direction for the majority of the flight through the atmosphere)..

 I am a newb at this, but I do have a good reference "Rocks from Space" by NOrton.
