A stunning example of an ammonite fossil of the species Promicroceras planicosta from the world-famous Jurassic Coast beach of Lyme Regis, Dorset UK.
The piece of limestone matrix measures 80 mm (3.2 inches) tall and the fossil ammonite measures 28 mm (1.1 inches). The ammonite is very well preserved and has been prepared out of the rock to reveal the whole shell. The ribs are very finely defined, and the yellow colour is beautiful. Part of the outer whorl is split, revealing stunning brown "dog tooth" crystals that filled the body chamber.
A great example of the species and impressive in the flesh. The fossil weighs 184 grams and has a cut flat base to allow it to stand freely for display.
Around 196 million years old (Sinemurian, Early Jurassic), this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
