On average once every seven years is an Asteroceras this large discovered. The specimen was found in 1983 after several mud slides and torrential rain uncovered this huge Obtusum. Many hours of preparation has gone into this magnificent fossil. There is a very good repair and a very small area of restoration on the outer whorl. This however, does not detract from the stunning overall aesthetics. Most serious collectors worldwide do not have an Asteroceras Obtusum of this size and quality. The ammonite has been preserved in different shades of brown calcite and a piece of matrix has been left attached which has a level base for display purposes. A world class ammonite from this most iconic of fossil localities. Mary Anning used to patrol this exact place 200 years ago looking for these 200 million year old fossils.
