Here is something different for the fossil collector.  This is a very nice detailed Ammonite from the Staithes area of North Yorkshire in England.  This nice Amaltheus Subnodosus ammonite fossil is in a matrix that close inspection shows evidence of other fossils.  The Ammonite is from the Juassic period, Plensbachian stage, about 185 million years old.  The Ammonite measures almost 1 1/4″ x nearly 1 1/8″  in matrix that measures almost 3″ x nearly 2 1/8″ x over 1″ thick.  A very nice addition to your fossil collection.

Description

Ammonites are extinct members of the cephalopod group of mollusks. Only a limited number of species have survived to the present day which includes the squid and the chambered nautilus. Ammonites had a multi-chambered shell, and added more chambers as it grew, always living in the outer chamber.  They lived in the Cretaceous period some 63 to 130 million years ago.
