I would have to agree with Tim. Looks like common ironstone.

Your first picture looks like it could be an osteoderm (scute) of some sort. With the prominent ridge running across and the way the pattern disappears towards the bottom edge looks suspiciously like a croc scute. Shots of the side and back would help with Id.

That first one could also be a fragment of shell from the turtle Peritresius. But as FossilGuy1024 says, more clear views are needed.

Turtle plate fragment was my first thought, also.
