This marvellous large obtusum is complete and has taken many hours to prepare to this unrivalled standard. Any Asteroceras of this size,found thesedays is a real rarity especially ones of this exceptional quality. This particular specimen was discovered on Black Ven at a place called "Dead Man's Tree" in 1988 and has remained in the same collection ever since. The ammonite lies in the middle of a beautiful nodule which really adds to the aesthetics. This solid brown calcified ammonite would grace any museum or private collection anywhere in the world. As always the preparation is superb on Fossils Direct as this is always high priority on our agenda. The ammonite is approximately 200 million years old and comes with a display stand.
From an old collection comes this very fine Pliosaur tooth from this long gone location. The tooth has a typical preservation that is associated with Potton as all specimens are slightly worn due to being a derived deposit. Potton is also famous for its Dinosaur remains. One for the collector of fine teeth.
From an old collection comes this polished section of a jaw. The specimen was found under Church Cliffs at Lyme Regis. It is difficult to determine what species of animal this came from as there appear to be sockets where the teeth fit in. It is most probably Ichthyosaur however, it could well be that it is something else which would, in turn, be exceptionally rare.
