Hi
Was looking for a bit of help with these. New to fossil collecting so they may not even be fossils. I know one looks like an amenitie of some sort but this one is very thin and is goldish in colour

Many thanks

Hello Mick and welcome to the forum. I think the first specimen (multiple photos) is the internal cast of part of a large ammonite as well as the 'golden ' ammonite . I can't say much more without knowing where they were both found so that I can check the geology of the area. Incidentally, is the object to the left of the pen a specimen?

Yes the one on the left is a fossill or at least i think it is thought it may have been some kind of tooth but that's a complete quest. All found at robin hoods bay. Thanks for your quick reply

Hi again - the left hand one is probably the top part of a belemnite. I am not the person to ask about Yorkshire amonites I'm  afraid, but someone will know what it is!

The radial calcite of the first fossil suggests to me that it may actually be a Pinna bivalve. Ammonite shell is typically more layered.
As Colin said, the left hand one is a belemnite, and the right hand one may be Oxynoticeras or something similar - a fantastic specimen!
