Found these 2 items in amongst my fossils but cannot remember where they came from.
Pink red swirly thing looks like a fossilized squirt of mud thats partially collapsed is from rock pool so Robin Hoods bay up to Redcar,
The ammonite looks to be from similar deposit to ones I have from Speeton. Could possibly be a Filey erratic but it is too good condition I think.

Hi, the first one/2 is half a gastropod (internal cast.

The ammonite looks like one of those Madagascan ones you see in shops all over. No idea what species it is though
Thanks, VF

Simberskites? I've found several at Speeton.

I'm a bit doubtful of the gastropod internal cast. It looks like a squirt from a sealant gun, silicone or similar.

The ammonite is a bit thick for Simbirskites.

The bottom one is a Perisphinctes type thing from Madagascar I think

Doubtful about squirt from a sealant gun...what would it be doing in a rock pool...lol
It does however have a close similarity to terracotta texture and colour...maybe a little coarser.

Hi  guys...I have a peresphinctes from Madagascar and doesn't look the same as this and the matrix is really different...matrix more like the Speeton endemoceras I found. The trouble is I cannot remember finding this and it is annoying me.
I may have to put it down to someone gifting it to me

The first piece indeed looks like it is a piece of rolled ceramic fragment, possibly medieval or even roman. Definitely not a gastropod intenal mold.
Cannot comment on the ammo other than it is really nice.

Looked on-line photos and it appears to be similar to the simberskites
More I look at it more I think I must have picked it up Filey to Speeton...no one would have sold the ammo in that state.
Thx Brian

Not Simbirskites, that species has mid-flank tubercles which this specimen lacks. Still going with a Perisphinctid of some sort but outside my knowledge really
