Can anyone ID these? Found at Saltwick earlier this week. Have an inkling that the smaller item is a belemnite, not sure of the larger one. Coral?

Thanks 20171228_223625.jpg  20171228_223607.jpg  20171228_223556.jpg  20171228_223542.jpg

Hi Cracker2k2 - you are correct about the belemnite.
Not sure on the second piece, it looks unusual with a hollow centre. Could you show a better end view?

Thanks for the reply. Here are a few photos of each end.

Thanks for the new pictures Cracker2k2.
It's not a coral.

Picture 2 shows the imprint of a small ammonite.
Picture 1 appears to have a shell like appearance, so it is possible that the specimen is the body chamber of a larger ammonite in which the smaller ammonite has been trapped. However, the cross section does not look like an ammonite cross section, so I can't be sure what it is.
Hopefully someone may have a better idea.

thanks again.
Roy D.
