A good sized specimen which has been preserved in solid calcite and fully prepared. Both valves of the bivalve have been preserved and intact. Very nice detail throughout. Approximately 198 million years old.
Again, a beautiful example of a complete sponge which is approximately 175 million years old. No collecting has been allowed from this world famous locality for over 20 years. This sponge was collected in 1986 and has been fully prepared. A classic rarity for the collector.
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.
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.
