Ammonite fossils from Yorkshire

Ammonite fossil specimens, mostly from Whitby, UK. These are largely Dactylioceras.

Whitby Ammonites are often regarded as some of the best condition specimens the UK produces, but there are many, many lower grade pieces found too.

Their condition all depends on how they were found - some are exposed to the sea, air, and wind long before they are found - some are found by cracking nodules in half.

  • #1 - 71.5x70x59MM - A nicely preserved split specimen with some water rounding to the outside but excellent preservation inside.
  • #2 - 75x66x30MM - Half in a nodule.
  • #3 - 86x82x35MM - Half in a nodule, with shell impression.
  • #4 - 82x69x28MM - A half in a nodule, with reasonable preservation. Could likely be prepared further.
  • #6 - 60.5x51.5x19MM - Some damage, still in a nodule.
  • #11 - 31x29x8MM - One side heavily sea-worn, one side nice and crisp where its popped out of the matrix.
  • #14 - 38x33.5x11MM - Fair bit of matrix on this one, it could do with some additional preparation.
  • #16 - 48x38x18MM - Decent specimen in a matrix, some damage.
  • #25 - 93x80x48MM - A damaged specimen with some water rounding.
  • #28 - 54x40x17.5MM - A very worn impression showing Calcite crystals on the front and the rounded nodule typical of Whitby fossils to the rear.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information

How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.


How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.


How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.


I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.


What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
