Preserved in a large rectangular block of chalk is this stunning and rare example of this cretaceous chalk sponge. The sponge has been expertly prepared. Examples like this are very seldom seen for sale as most of them end up in museum collections. This is a particularly fine and extremely sought after specimen.
Fossils which have been damaged or poorly during their lives are sometimes preserved and are known a "pathological" specimens. This belemnite as can be seen in the images, has got a bent tip. The specimen has been beautifully preserved in solid brown calcite and is almost complete. A fantastic addition to any collection. areal good conversation starter piece.
Preserved on a bed of "Tuning Fork" graptolites (Didymograptus murchisoni) is this undetermined cystoid. This is the first example we have ever seen from this location and what makes it more special is the graptolites around it. A fabulous and extremely rare fossil.
