please help identify shell

please help identify shell
I picked the shell in the image below/attached from seabed during a dive in Gulf of Thailand.
I asked both the diver master and a fisherman there and none of them had a clue what this was.

It's so strange a shell. I really wanted to know what it'd looked like when it'd been alive!

thanks for the great tip
I looked up further on internet
and I think they're called heart urchins, FYI!
