This is a fossil of an ammonite, an extinct cephalopod - similar to today’s squid and nautili. Ammonites became extinct at the same time as the dinosaurs (approximately 65 million years ago).
Ammonites make good indexing fossils; paleontologists and geologists can use them to help date other fossils found in the same area.
