Found this little puppy the other day in Albi, France. As far as I can tell from googling it.. its an Orthoceras. was about 80cm down in clay like soil.. thoughts? Looks like a stone with an imprinted shell but from what I gather that was actually part of the animal?

Hello and welcome to the forum. A perfect shape to grind & polish for a pendant! I am unable  to get to the geology of Albi at the moment but it looks lke Ordovician.

Sure, Orthoceras, but very surprising for Albi!!
looks like the Orthoceras found in Morocco... (may be someone lost it here in Albi?)
