Preserved on a hard block of Ordovician mudstone is a group of nicely preserved classic Ogygiocarella. There are two more or less complete examples and a tail of another one. A great addition - one for the drawers !
Scunthorpe is more famously known for its Lower Lias fossils however, there is an outcrop of Upper Lias that occurs. This fine specimen which was found in a hard pyritic nodule, has been carefully prepared from the surrounding matrix. This is a beautiful and much sought after ammonite from this classic location.
From the world famous ironstone quarries of Scunthorpe, is this well preserved Gryphea (Devil's Toenail)shell. Sadly, these quarries are now being filled in or are totally overgrown and fossils are becoming more scarse. The specimen is approximately 200 million years old.
