  1. I guess as you get older, you get a little more crazy. I had sworn to slow down a bit, particularly after my exhausting hike down the mountain recently, so I'd been visiting easy-to-work sites like the ditch and the shark tooth exposure the last few weeks. But then my colleague told me that he'd opened up another section at the Callovian site in the Wutach Valley and that I should have a look at it. Maybe you can make some good finds. Well, why not? So off I went today. At this site you have to remove a lot of overburden to get at the good horizons and then you're whacking away at a hard

    Emileia contrahens (Buckman,1927)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    Ovale Zone, Lower Wedelsandstone Member, Lower Bajocian, Middle Jurassic. Found in the Wutach area. I'm quite proud of this one, since it represents the stratigraphically oldest record of the Genus Emileia in Germany and one of the oldest records worldwide. Recently published in Zittelania and now in the collection of the Stuttgart Museum of Natural History.
  10. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    3.5cm. This specimen with its shell mostly intact shows the innermost whorls of this subspecies. The venter at this stage is flat, but it rounds off at a later stage and gets covered up as it grows. From the koenigi zone, lower Callovian. Found in the Wutach area.

    Another Multiblock

    We're still allowed to move about freely here in good old Baden-Wuerttemberg, so I figured as long as this is still the case, I'll mosey along to my spot in the Callovian in the Wutach Valley. A friend of mine has been working there recently, so I was hoping for some more fresh exposure and sure enough, he'd opened up some new possibilities for me. Spent the good part of the day prying and hammering and came up with a few nice things. Here's the first and probably the best which I just finished prepping this evening. A multiblock measuring 12x12x6cm with 4 x Choffatia sp. and a bit of belemnit
  12. Marcel @Everhardus and his wife Josette are spending their holidays in the area right now. I had agreed to show them around and so we spent the day together visiting a couple of sites in the Wutach area. Here they are enjoying keeping their balance on a slope at the Scheffheu. I was happy that they were able to make a few nice finds and Marcel emailed me today to tell me that they'd had more success at the Callovian site. I unfortunately didn't make any more photos, but maybe they can post something here if he checks in. Meanwhile, I can at least show you the ammonites

  15. I just couldn't resist revisiting the Callovian site again which I recently reported about here. I was figuring on removing some more overburden to get back in at the productive layer. To this purpose I brought along my heavy pickaxe this time. That saved a lot of wear and tear on the wrist, although my elbows were beginning to ache a bit later on in the day, but that was no worse than playing a couple of sets of tennis As usual, my first finds were little stuff. But then the hope-for big one appeared. It also wasn't quite complete in the end, but I'm

  18. My customer/friend, let's just call him X. for now, brought me another large ammonite which he had recently pryed up for prep. He got this one out in 3 pieces, 2 of which he glued back together. The ammonite itself has a diameter of 30cm. Here's what I was faced with to begin with (Well almost. I took the pics after I had started in with the stylus.) The 1st pic shows them side by side, the 2nd in original position and the 3rd the reverse side. S. first had the wish that I remove it completely from the matrix, but I wasn't so sure about the ch

    Fissilobiceras sp. (Buckman 1919)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    I prepped this ammonite with a diameter of 50cm. for a customer who allowed me to show it here. I had to glue the living chamber back on which was in 2 pieces and also fill a lot of gaps with modelling clay. His wife did a great job at balancing the colors with water paints. This is quite a rare find, particularly at this size. ovale zone Wedelsandstein Formation Early Bajocian From the Wutach Valley

  21. One of my customers is keeping me quite busy lately. Last week he brought me among other things a relatively large, 22cm. diameter Callovian Choffatia ammonite from the Wutach Valley with another few smaller ones plus a belemnite attached. He asked me to send him play-by-play photos, which I did, so I figured I might just as well show them to you guys as well. Here are pics of both sides in the raw. As you can probably tell, it was extracted in 3 pieces which he glued back together. You can barely see the belemnite on the right in the middle of the first p
  22. I recieved a large (32cm. in diameter) ammonite on commission recently which turned out to be rather complicated to prepare. It's a Fissilobiceras sp. from the ovale zone in the Early Bajocian from the Wutach valley. Most of it was imbedded in matrix, so it wasn't possible to judge at first in what kind of condition the inner whorls were and it was too fragile to just have a quick go at it with hammer and chisel in order to find out, so I had to take the slower route peeling off layer after layer with the stylus. Here's how both sides looked to begin with. After
