Wait for more experienced members, but from that last picture almost looks like a cast. If so no prep work is possible. Its the impression of an ammonite. Like I said wait for more responses, and welcome to the forum.

yeah, it really looks like a impression. If you plan was to prep it, I hope you didn't pay too much.

Looks like another bit of ammonite - which would prep. I wouldn't attempt it with my basic tools though.

get a small sample of molding compound... silicon or something and make a mold of it.  You will then have a positive of your ammonite.
