This specimen is from an unusual inland location and was found in a temporary exposure. The specimen was collected over ten years ago and is preserved in pyrite. The ammonite is matrix free and is preserved to the centre on both sides. A nice addition - one for the drawers !!
From an old collection comes this classic Scottish Eurypterid from this most famous and iconic of locations. These sea scorpions were one of the top predators in the Silurian seas and some grew up to a metre in length. This specimen has been beautifully preserved on a squared piece of hardened shale and will make a great addition to any collection. A fabulous specimen.
Preserved matrix free is this crocodile scute (armoured plate)which are to be found on the crocodile's back and still can be seen in modern day crocodiles. Specimens such as this are becoming increasingly scarse as unfortunately most of the pits that produce clay are now sadly closed and filled in, making collecting impossible.
