It's a piece of sea glass.
That is, it's the corner of a glass bottle that's been broken up on the sea shore and washed around for a while (maybe years) and the actoion of the sand has ground off the rough edges leaving this lump of sand blasted glass.

Thanx NaomiM, your information has most certainly helped me. Whilst browsing I managed to find this piece, still in a crystalized state.

As an ex-geologist, I can assure you it's man-made glass, not fluorite. Fluorite would have been ground to dust and dissolved by the action of the waves.

I agree with Naomi, probably started life off as a Cod bottle which are quite thick...
