A beautiful example of this uncommon upper liassic ammonite. The ammonite itself has been preserved in various shades of brown calcite and has an immaculate centre. The specimen was discovered in 2012 and has been prepared to a very high standard. Approximately 180 million years old.
This lovely association also exhibits another Bivalve which is smooth (Neocrassina modiolaris)and an ammonite Garantiana garantiana). Multi assemblages such as this example are highly sought after by collectors. Quality fossils from this stretch of coastline are becoming scarse to find thesedays due to little erosion. The specimen is free-standing on its own matrix base and ready for display. Many hours of preparation have gone into this 167 million year old fossil.
This rare double was collected back in 1983 and has been totally re-prepared and the matrix has a cut base for ease of upright display. Both echinoids overlap each other which is a lovely and aesthetic feature, just as they would have come to settle on the seabed some 167 million years ago. This display fossil is superb and would grace most collections.
