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 44 mm (1.72 inches) across with matrix, which is large for this species. The ammonite shell is very well preserved with great detail in the ribbing and suture lines. It is perfect to the centre on both sides, which is uncommon in these large Crucilobiceras. It has been coated in a soluble (reversible) varnish for protection. 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.
