Found this & not sure what it is. Looks a bit like a molar tooth. About 2 inch long x 1 3/4 " wide. Found at Reighton/Speeton, N. Yorks. One side smooth & one side rougher. Help would be appreciated in identifying. mo1.jpg  mo2.jpg  mo3.jpg  mo4.jpg

Hi, Sorry that is not a tooth but the preserved chamber from an Ammonite - sometimes the individual chambers of the ammonite break apart, here on the Isle of Wight they are known as Cats Paws.

Thanks very much! I'll look them up. New to this & know nothing about it.

Hello and welcome to the forum Craig. Martyn is correct, a small section of an ammonite showing the 'cat;s paw' detail.

Thank you both for your replies. I would never have thought of ammonite so that's saved me a lot of time. I'll upload some other stuff later.
