A stunning example of an ichthyosaur jaw fossil from the world-famous Jurassic Coast beach of Lyme Regis, Dorset UK.
A large section of pyritised ichthyosaur jaw that has been cut and polished to a professional finish. The jaw is from the species Temnodontosaurus platyodon and is preserved in 3D with all teeth in situ. Pieces of this size and quality and rare and very hard to find these days. These iconic fossils were first found at Lyme Regis by pioneering 19th Century fossil hunter Mary Anning and are very sought after today. These fossils are hard to find in such good condition.
Around 196 million years old (Sinemurian, Early Jurassic), this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
