The Frodingham Ironstone of Scunthorpe is world famous for its amazing ammonites. However, there are other faunas to be found which are often overlooked. This is a fine "Scallop" shell, which has hardly changed over millions of years. This is a great and aesthetic display specimen on a chunky piece of matrix.
This is a fine and totally matrix free example of a very large Barnacle shell. If you compare the size of this to the ones found round the British coastline, it is huge. A great example,one for the shell collector.
This strange looking Brachiopod is of a now extinct genus. The specimen has been preserved matrix free, which indeed is rare. This is a fine and very unusual specimen. Ideal for the shell collector. An article was written in National Geographic magazine approximately six years ago about this species.
