Translucent Ammonite in Matrix

Regular price $120.00

Item: Promicroceras
Age: Jurassic (180 myo)
Size:  1"  (4 x 7" matrix)
Location: Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK
Notes:  Stunning little guy, still right in the middle of the original rock matrix where he was found, but prepared from both sides so that you can see the light pass through the delicate calcite shell. The rock has a flat base for standing upright. This location itself has an amazing history, for this is the location the famous paleontologist Mary Anning would walk in the early 1800s and go on to discover many famous fossils- such as an icthyosaur at age 12 and a pterosaur later on. She was also said to have inspired the tongue-twister: ‘She sells sea-shells on the sea-shore.’
