A stunning example of a highly pyritised ammonite fossil of the species Tropidoceras sp. from the world famous Jurassic Coast beach of Charmouth, Dorset UK.
The fossil measures 35 mm (1.38 inches) across which is very large for this species. The ammonite is very well preserved on both sides. The ribs are very finely defined and the golden colour is beautiful. A great example of the species. These ammonites are not often found and 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.
