A little Hildoceras I picked up recently from Saltwick Bay in Whitby. Unfortunately I didn’t take any before pictures to show. All that was showing was the top of the keel and a small portion of the outer whorl. It’s be no means finished yet, but thought people might enjoy the process so far. Iv prepped out some of the matrix underneath to give the ammonite a floating effect.
Basically we've bought a lovely new static caravan near whitby, and today have drove up to pay for it. Saltwick bay, if anybody knows it. The previous owners who were on the plot that my static will go on had a bunch of old rocks in their little garden plot. I've asked for all them to be removed, but i found these there. Looks like they've been there for over 10 years. Sadly due to the tides I couldnt do any fossil hunting myself, but there will be plenty of finds coming from me in the future. (maybe even some reptile remains in the stormy winter months) So the best things i picked up were these. They're very dirty as i've just washed them. Double Dac nodule! Old hildy, looks like the other end might split with a chisel and hammer, hopefully revealing a nice specimen with a decent centre.
