Lyme Regis being one of the most famous fossiliferous locations in the world, is always associated with its fine marine animals. However, on very rare occasions fossil insects can be found. This specimen from a small piece of woodstone, exhibits a set of complete wing cases,which is exceptionally rare! These particular fossils are highly sought after throughout the world by collectors. Approximately 200 million years old.
From the classic but sadly closed pits of Scunthorpe, comes this ammonite whorl which is covered in Serpulid Worm Tubes. The detail and depth of the specimen is of fine quality. A great study specimen which is approximately 200 million years old.
From an old collection is this superb large, clearly defined Scallop shell. The colour of the shell against the grey matrix really makes this specimen stand out. Specimens of this type are hard to come by and this would make a great acquisition for any fossil shell collection.
Preserved on a very shelly piece of Frodingham Ironstone is this death assemblage of Belemnites. There are nine examples preserved of various sizes. The Belemnites really stand out from the surrounding matrix, being dark brown in colour. A great little conversation piece. Approximately 200 million years old.
