Preserved on a beautiful piece of ancient siltstone is this magnificent Pod Shrimp. The Pod Shrimp has been preserved exceptionally and even has its mouth and jaws preserved. This specimen from an old collection is from the classic and world famous Logan Water in Scotland. Specimens of this quality are highly sought after throughout the world and it is no exception. This is a great collectors piece!!
Preserved in this very hard and very difficult to prepare Sheppey nodule, are four large fish vertebrae. The size of the vertebrae indicate that this was one "exceptionally large" predatory fish. A very good rare example showing good detail. One for the collector!! Approximately 50 million years old.
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.
Collected over ten years ago this specimen was found in a temporary inland location. This is a classic Oxford Clay ammonite that has been preserved in pyrite and is totally matrix free. A lovely drawer specimen.
