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 56 mm (2.2 inches) across with matrix which is large for this species. The ammonite is well-preserved on both sides in the centre of the matrix that is composed of the crushed outer whorl of the shell. The ribs are very finely defined and the golden colour is beautiful. These ammonites are becoming harder to find these days.
Around 196 million years old, this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection
