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 46 mm (1.8 inches) across with matrix, which is very large for this species. The ammonite shell is very well preserved with great detail in the ribbing and suture lines. It is clean on both sides with a tiny bit of crystalline pyrite matrix in the centres. It has a beautiful pyritic metallic shine. These large Crucilobiceras ammonites are uncommon as most are much smaller. This is one of the nicest we have found at this size.
Around 196 million years old, this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
