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 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.
This beautiful and highly ornate example of this classic Jurassic algal fossil would fit into any collection or indeed the interior as it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. This particular specimen has been cut and ground and a high professional polish applied to reveal the beautiful structure. This stone is locally known as "Beetroot Stone" and I think we can all understand why. Approximately 168 million years old.
