A lovely example of this sought after Oxfordian ammonite which lies in an aesthetic piece of matrix which also has a flat base for display options. This specimen was collected around 1988 from a locality which does not exist anymore.
This very nice example has been preserved in solid pyrite and has an immaculate centre. The specimen was discovered in 2011. A lovely drawer aquisition for the collector. Approximately 195 million years old.
Collected in the late seventies, is this very large and infact one of the largest we have had for sale on Fossils Direct, of this species. The specimen was found in a fallen block on the beach and carefully removed. The specimen is matrix free and the aperture has been slightly "scooped" to give this ammonite maximum aesthetics. A very large display ammonite, comes with a display stand.
This large specimen is incredibly rare from this locality. The ammonite has been preserved in solid calcite and has an immaculate centre. Most of the fossil bearing localities around this area are no longer accessible to the collector, which means these stunning ammonites will become real collectors pieces in future. This ammonite has been fully prepared by Andy Cowap and was discovered in 1989.
