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.
Preserved on a block of chalk is this beautiful specimen. The specimen has been carefully prepared using air abrasive techniques to reveal the fine ornamentation on the shell as well as the delicate long spines. There are modern forms of Spondilus "Spiny Oysters" that still exist today. A very aesthetic and fine specimen.
This is a lovely and well preserved Scallop shell that is some 200 million years old. The scallop shell has been preserved on a block of Frodingham ironstone from the world famous and very sought after Scunthorpe quarries. Sadly, these quarries are no more, so items such as this will become scarse.
