description  
This is one of the rarest ammonites we will ever have for sale on Fossils Direct because of its remote locality and sheer lack of erosion. Discovered by Andy Cowap in 1987 the specimen has remained with him ever since. The ammonite lies in a small piece of limestone and has been preserved in solid calcite of various shades. The specimen is highly ribbed and its Tubercules preserved. Over nine hours of preparation has gone into this one-off upper lias ammonite which has never been recorded on Skye before. the ammonite's centre is immaculate. As incredibly rare ammonites go, from the United Kingdom, this one, from this locality, is amongst the very rarest and a chance to find another from this location is virtually zero as all the beds are now gone.
