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 (1.35 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 and suture lines. There is a hole in the centre of the shell and two tiny juvenile ammonites on one side of the main shell. 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.
