That's an interesting one. Looks like a worn ammonite. Is it from yorkshire by any chance?

tap the side off with a hammer and you will have a perfect centre in there. its probably a Dactylioceras
Wierd angle of erosion but you can see the various chambers.

it is certainly an ammonite in a pebble. Species probably dactylioceras commune. I collect alot of these from saltwick bay.

Would it be that the fossil has been worn by water?

yeah you saw me popping open one of these on the trip. a quick sharp tap with a hammer and chisel and it should open up. :-)
