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 35 mm (1.4 inches) across with matrix, 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 with the centre and part of one whorl missing and it 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.
