I've heard of flooring / tiling like this, but I've never seen it first hand. Impressive set!

I have mentioned before that I would absolutely love a fireplace made of fossil stones. The down side, moving!

The siphuncle on (almost) all ammonoids is along the ventral margin, so what looks like a siphuncle in the middle of a whorl is more likely the siphuncle of an inner whorl. So, unless that line(s) through the center of the fossil is an artifact of another whorl, it is indeed the siphuncle. There may be a portion of the siphuncle on the right, but it is too broken up to tell for sure.
