A really beautifully preserved example of this rare Upper Lias ammonite especially from this locality. The ammonite's centre is immaculate and a level base has been cut to the matrix for display purposes. Localities to collect these wonderful ammonites are rapidly disappearing due to other commercial interests by the land owners. A fantastic addition for the collector of rare UK ammonites. Apprpximately 180 million years old.
A lovely example which has been ground into a tablet shape and all sides have been highly polished. The detail within the ammonites is wonderful, especially under magnification. The white line around each ammonite is the original shell preserved. This iconic material is rare indeed and these are amongst the most popular Liassic ammonites Promicroceras marstonense. Approximately 200 million years old. A very nice collectors piece.
This classic piece exhibits hundreds of tiny ammonites (Promicroceras marstonense) which have been killed off in a single catastrophic event some 200 million years ago. Each ammonite has been preserved in various shades of honey coloured calcite with stunning detail throughout. This piece has been ground into a tactile, smooth specimen with a professional polish applied. A wonderful addition for the collector of fine fossils.
A really good example which shows a cross section through this famous assemblage which is gem smooth and has a high polish. The detail within the ammonites is stunning and the exterior white lines is the ammonite's original shell. The specimen is polished on both sides and is approximately 200 million years old.
