From these pictures, it looks to me like dibunophyllum, it is a type of coral. But I'd love to see it from some more angles!

The first picture looks like the inner structure of a shark vertebrate that has split in half. The second picture looks like something totally different. But I would say its a split shark vertebrate.

I am not quit sure, but you find these concretions a lot, in Antwerp, sometimes there is a little stick inside, i think a heard someone say that the concretion is formed around a rayspine, but i've not seen that, the concretions are like 8 cm long, and 5 cm wide. And inside there is this colouring you have. They also split easely horizontally.

Here a picture of what i believe it to be: a fossil limpet, althoug i have no idea what spieces this might be.

It is not easy to identify only by looking at pictures. Me thinks, a fish vertebra in a phosphorite concretion; the other side shows phosphorite with some inprints of shells.

I mean, seriously?
I fail to see how these guesses contribute anything to help the topicstarter to identify his fossil.
I'm not sure I'm even able to find things more different than a limpet, a rugose coral, a split shark vertebra and a fosforite concretion. Hold on, a paleozoïc coral. In Antwerp? The front resembles a vertebra and the back does not, so let's forget about the back and call it a vertebra, ok?

Come on.
Sorry for this rant, but I'm laughing my ass of here.

But it is not funny. Ptychodus is asking a honest question and it is turned into a guessing game. But: either you know what this object is (or you have a good hypothesis), or you don't. Ptychodus asks for help. A guess based on superficial resemblance does not count as "help", in fact, it is the opposite of help. At least, that is my humble opinion.

Anyway, I think it's the petrified eyeball of a sea cow:

Sure looks like it

Ptychodus,
Doubt if it is a vertebrae.

Haven't read an answer, it's in Dutch, it comes to regular finds, with some theories.

Hello,

thank you for your answers. I have one more picture. May be that this can give some new information for identification. Its very interesting to hear some different ideas.

I think it is a part of a vertebra, may be shark. It seams to be the best declaration.
I don't think that it is a coral or a limped because there is no coral or limped structure.

This picture makes me even more confused.
By the way, you English isn’t bad at all!
Maybe you could post your collection too?

The ammonit from foto 2 is from Sengenthal Germany.
It is only a smale one, 4,5cm.
