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 30 mm (1.2 inches) across, which is a good size for this species. The ammonite shell is very well preserved with great detail in the ribbing, spines, and suture lines. It is clean on both sides and has a beautiful pyritic metallic shine. These large Crucilobiceras ammonites are uncommon as most are much smaller.
Around 196 million years old, this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
