A stunning and large example of an ammonite fossil of the species Psiloceras planorbis from North Somerset, UK.
The piece of limestone matrix measures 292 mm (11.5 inches) tall and contains lots of beautiful ammonites spread across the rock. The ammonites are well preserved and have been prepared out of the rock to reveal the shells, which display some beautiful iridescent colours that change as the angle the fossil is viewed from changes. Each ammonite has its own unique colour, with all the colours of the rainbow being present across the shells. The fossil weighs 895 grams and has a cut-flat base to allow it to stand freely for display. These ammonites make wonderful display items and are real conversation starters.
Around 200 million years old (Hettangian, Early Jurassic), this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
