A stunning example of a highly pyritised ammonite fossil of the species Eoderoceras (Eteoderoceras) armatum from the world-famous Jurassic Coast beach of Charmouth, Dorset UK.

The fossil measures 140 mm (5.6 inches) across with matrix, which is enormous for this species and about as big as it gets. The ammonite is beautifully preserved in a pyrite matrix composed of the crushed outer whorl of the shell. A great example of the species that has nice suture lines and a lovely metallic colour and shine. Several cracks in the matrix have been stabilised, as is common with these large ammonites. There are also some smaller ammonites of the same species preserved in the matrix, adding to the interest in this piece. These ammonites are becoming harder to find these days and this one is a real beauty. It weighs 505 grams.

 

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