    The first looks like a brittle star, also known as ophiuroids. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittle_star

     

    The second is a type of cephalopod called Orthoceras. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthoceras

    @denise-porcello, @vperez  The orthocone looks a lot like Moroccan material.  I would Google the IDs that Victor has given you and do an image search.  If you see specimens that look like yours you may then be able to find out what they are and where they came from.

    The first fossil is an Ordovician brittle star from Morocco. I actually have TWO in my collection. The other one is a polished stone with and Orthoceras (nautiloid) fossil. However whoever polished it must have shaved off half the fossil.
