  1. Lyme Ammonite prep thread

    I have decided to do a live prep thread on a Dorset ammonite. The ammonite is roughly a foot across and is embedded in a big bit of matrix. I am exposing the ammonite using very basic tools, so fingers crossed I will post regular updates
  2. Hi everyone! Last week I went camping for 3 days with my cousin and her parents in Lyme Regis (first time on the jurassic coast) and managed to persuade them to join me in a little fossil hunting! On the first day we went to Lyme Regis beach and to cut a long story short, we had no luck. all I found was half of a compressed ammonite in the shale which I then realised I lost when we got back to the campsite! I wasn't bothered though as the shale is so crumbly that it would not have lasted very long anyway. We did however have a really nice time on the beach and saw lots of huge ammonites in the rocks and the ammonite graveyard which was amazing. The next day was allocated to the museum and looking around the fossil shops. Of course I would have loved to have spent the day searching for fossils, but I only tagged along to this holiday! On the last day we went to Charmouth beach in the hope of better luck. My hope was diminished when we saw the hundreds of people all traipsing the beach looking for fossils. A lot of them had hammers and seemed to be hammering indiscriminately at rocks however, and most of those looking on the beach were just walking and staring at their feet. It became obvious quite quickly that this was not an effective method at this site and so I spent that day on my hands and knees. Belemnites were abundant (I really should have stopped picking them up but I couldn't resist) as were tiny ammonite fragments. I only found 3 nicely exposed whole ammonites though and one encased in rock (I might buy some tools to prep it myself - just got my university scholarship money, why spend it on fees!) And then came the excitement: all the previous week I had been preoccupied about this trip to the Jurassic coast and the odd chance of finding an ichthyosaur vertebra, without ever thinking I would. But, a few hours into the trip, what should I see laying on the ground by my feet? An ichthyosaur vertebra!! I just grabbed it and had to sprint back to my cousin down the beach to show her! It more than made up for not finding a larger or more complete ammonite. All in all we had a great time, I can't wait to go back! Some of my nicer finds Some bivalves My only nice whole ammonites Ammonite fragment filled with crystal, there's a lovely ring of golden pyrite showing around the crystal too Crinoid stems The ichthyosaur vertebra!
  3. Lyme Regis fossil ID

    Hi! I found this on my recent trip to Lyme Regis, UK. It would be Jurassic in age. Found on the beach, so I can’t say what layer it came from unfortunately. Its striations are quite ornate and beautiful, and I’d love to know what it is! Bottom view
  4. Hi! I’m currently in Lyme Regis, UK and will be here for a few more (I’ll hopefully be adding to this thread as it goes on!) My parents and I arrived into town yesterday, but before we even could do that, we missed the bus due to a slightly delayed train ride. So we decided to take a short stop in the cafe at the station and was met by this massive beauty. It was great to be greeted by Mary Anning before we even made it to Lyme Regis! Our bus finally came (after a great lunch!) and we were on our merry way! Once we got into town, it was lovely weather - sunny and windy - even though it’s been quite stormy here the past week or so apparently! Makes for good fossil hunting! Unfortunately it was high tide when we arrived so we couldn’t go hunting, but we walked along the Marine Parade along the people beach and ate the best scallops I’ve ever had. In the background, you can see the cliffs of the Jurassic Coast, where Mary Anning found the first Ichthyosaur. The whole town is peppered with fossil shops and paraphernalia, even the light posts are ammonites!
  5. Lyme regis fossil

    Does anyone know what this is, it's from lyme regis and the rock is about 10 cm long.
  6. Ichthyosaur?

    Hello Everyone, This came off the beach at Lyme Regis, heading toward Charmouth. I believe it to be part of an Ichthyosaur front paddle from near the "wrist" end. Confirmation required and any further information would be great. Thank you.
  7. Not sure what it is really, the pictures don't do it justice but the edge thats exposed is actually smooth and shiny.
  8. ID please

  9. Can coke be used to melt away Lyme Regis limestone?
  10. Species of ammonite?

  11. Fossils from Lyme Regis

    Could some please ID these fossils from the classic location, Lyme Regis? The bottom two pictures are from the same fossil and a UV light was used on one of the fossils to help it show up.
  12. Fossil ID

    Good Afternoon, I am new to this forum and I thought I may use the fossil ID service. I had a trip to the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis, England just after a storm and I snorkeled the coast as there always a wealth of fossils just out of reach under the waves. I found this strange item and had it ID'd locally as a possible Ichthyosaur paddle bone but I am unsure and think it may be just a geological formation. Marine worms have been making it their home and burrowing in which I haven't removed the remnants yet. The scale on the measure is in cm. Any second opinions are most welcome. Dan
  13. Lyme Regis Trip

    Firstly apologies for the lateness of this post, spent a week down in Lyme Regis from the 17th of December. Was out most evenings and some mornings due to the tide times, however i found hunting at night just as productive and with a lot less competition! The weather had been incredibly rough and was a bit unsettling at night when you could hear parts of the cliff falling down! The first few nights i mainly found ammonites and a few pieces of rolled bone (no photos of these, can put some up if anyone wishes me too) Best find was a partial ichthyosaur rostrum from below the Black Ven. Unfortunately no teeth and it has been very well rolled! None the less i was most pleased to find it. Found a couple more nice sized ammonites covered in pyrite and one well worn vertebra. See attached images. If anyone would like anymore photos please do not hesitate to ask. All in all a good week. Thanks for reading.
  14. Tips on cracking a Nodule?

    Hello everyone! Im just wondering if anyone has any tips on cracking a nodule open? Me and my geology hammer have taken a good whack at around the edges but all I’m getting is chipping and no splitting. My first time with a nodule. I found it on a trip to Lyme Regis. I’ve posted a picture of one of the chips with a few ammonites showing themselves. thanks for reading! Ryan
  15. How a poor Victorian woman became a legendary fossil hunter Mary Anning was renowned as a ‘geological lioness’, with her discoveries including the first complete plesiosaur fossil.
