Pyritic Ammonite specimens from Charmouth
Various pyritic Ammonites from Charmouth, typically Promicroceras. These pieces are typically brushed with a brass brush to give them a golden shine - however, we often stock pieces as they are found, so you have the choice of whether to brush them or not.
These Ammonites are found on the beaches around Lyme Regis and Charmouth, although the sheer amount of fossil hunters can render finding them quite difficult without a tour or experience!
These pieces are usually supplied with silica gel - we recommend keeping the sachet with the fossil and not storing them in a humid environment.
