In my opinion a cross section of a fragment of a cephalopod orthocone.

the oval shapes in a row are the siphuncle.

Now we need to figure out how a paleozoic fossil ended up in Florida.

The OP appears to be from Arkansas, so lots of paleozoic to choose from if found there.

OP may need to contribute more than a single photo, and more information regarding the finding of it.

Until then I'm going with transported via vulture gizzard. :ighappy:

Isn't the law that the old have to move to Florida? Paleozoic isn't young... :D

Hello everyone and thanks so much. The fossil is from Arkansas. I apologise for my ignorance. I didn't know what to use for tags so I picked from examples. So yes found in AR and here are more pics.

It was found by the War Eagle River in Madison County AR. It feels like a rock.15418723297202022711956.thumb.jpg.d18e9d1a502dc5377c0cdb416298498b.jpg

How old is it? Is it rare?

I don't know about rare but the one you have is mighty nice!!

If you want to know how old it is, pinpoint the location on this interactive map and check the legend for period/age.
