Is this an amonite?

Hello again

Thought i would get my amonite (?)  checked too, if that's what it is. It was found on Pakefield beach Suffolk in the sandy red soil that had fallen from the cliff. It is very fragile and broke when I lifted it out of the soil, I couldn't believe it still has some of the pearly sheen on the shell. Am I right?

Thanks

Gabby

    Yes, you have an ammonite, and a nice one too.  Nice colour and well preserved internal structure. I couldn't give you a species name off hand I'm affraid
