A stunning example of a highly pyritised ammonite fossil of the species Crucilobiceras densinodulum from the world-famous Jurassic Coast beach of Charmouth, Dorset UK.
The fossil measures 32 mm (1.3 inches) across, which is large for this species. The ammonite is very well-preserved on both sides with detailed and sharp ribbing. The golden colour and shine is beautiful and the distinctive suture lines are clear and pronounced. A great example of the species. These ammonites are becoming much harder to find these days due to lack of erosion of the right layers of rock. Large examples like this are particularly hard to come by now.
Around 196 million years old, this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
