A stunning example of a calcite ammonite fossil of the species Brasilia sp. from the Jurassic Coast beach of Burton Bradstock, Dorset UK.
The piece of limestone matrix measures 160 mm (6.3 inches) tall and the fossil ammonite measures 83 mm (3.25 inches) across. The ammonite is well preserved and has been prepared out of the rock to reveal the whole shell. A great example of the species and impressive in the flesh. The fossil weighs 1460 grams and has a cut flat base to allow it to stand freely on its own for display. These are very sought after ammonites from this world-famous location.
Around 196 million years old (Sinemurian, Early Jurassic), this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
