the_wobbly_fossiler A great day in good company spent on the beach at Charmouth, Dorset. This Promicroceras ammonite was just one of the fossils found, but was one of the most striking and surprising. There was only a worn edge showing on this tiny beach-rolled fragment of a ‘Woodstone’ (particular limestone nodular bed within the surrounding cliffs); a clip with the hammer quickly revealed the ammonite virtually filled the piece! Some beautiful colours in this one and another reason to keep your eyes open for even the seemingly small and insignificant bits of stone. You may end up with something a little unexpected… ☺️ Approximately 195 million years old.
