First fossil forage, help identifying!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm very new to this and went out looking for fossils today in Seafield, Fife (Scotland). 


I found a what I think are horn coral? And also something thst looks like a tooth, if anyone could help identify it please. Forgive my naivity if it's nothing! 


Thanks in advance

Congrats on your first finds! Yes, you are correct in those two curved ones being horn corals. And the oval is a crinoid stem. But that other piece is something special (the one with the circles on it) . That is a couple of plates of an echinoid, or sea urchin. Much more rare than horn corals! As for your "tooth", I am afraid it is just an interestingly shaped rock or perhaps bit of oyster shell. A tooth really will look "like a tooth" with enamel and root.
