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 41 mm (1.6 inches) across. The ammonite is very well-preserved in a pyrite matrix with detailed and sharp ribbing. The golden colour and shine is beautiful. There is a small hole in the centre of the shell. A great example of the species. These ammonites are becoming much harder to find these days due to lack of erosion of the right layers of rock.
Around 196 million years old, this fossil would make a wonderful addition to any collection.
