Pictures 1 and 2 are the same item. Same goes for pictures 3 and 4. All found in areas of high concentration of pyritized wood from the London clay. Any ideas on what animals these came from? 

(I can take detailed pictures with my DSLR if it would help. Just used my phone for these shots for now)

thanks.

If it was corroded iron would it still be magnetic?

I know from experience that should there be mounds of shingle you find sharks teeth. Been many years since I went last.

Yes if there is Iron in the centre, (Ithink), otherwise they may be flint.

Tried all of them with a strong magnet and nothing is magnetic. They were in the same pile as the shark vertebrae that I found.
