val horn

The first looks like an internal mold of a ammonite.  The others may not be fossils

The first one is a shell fragment of a bivalve, the other ones are granite pebbles from cretaceous fossil beaches, impreganated with iron oxides and glauconite...

1: it is an high energy setting. Bones there are often rolled or broken, so you should clearly see the inner spongiosa somewhere. If you find a bone, you should recognise it.

2: I never found bones (except serveral shark teeth) in the Upper Cretaceous around Ignaberga, although I have looked for them in several field weeks over the last 20 years.

3. I guess so.
