A stunning example of a highly pyritised multi-ammonite fossil of the species Crucilobiceras densinodulum from the world-famous Jurassic Coast beach of Charmouth, Dorset UK.

The fossil measures 35mm (1.38 inch) across. There are around 12 ammonites within the matrix, which is a lot for this type of fossil at his size. The ammonites are very well preserved and have a wonderful golden colour and shine. These beautiful fossils are getting much harder to find these days. Due to a lack of erosion in the correct rock layers, they are becoming uncommon.

These multi-ammonite assemblages (or 'death beds') occur when lots of shells came together on the seafloor before being fossilised together, often collecting around an obstacle in the mud like a piece of wood or larger shell. They are a beautiful snapshot of life (and death) on the seafloor almost 200 million years ago.

Around 196 million years old, this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
