The best of my ammonites 2.0


Recommended Posts

Best of my ammonites 2.0 reloaded.

 

I decided to redo “ best of my ammonite” thread because my old thread is a little outdated.  I have given so many of my ammonites away to friends that it seamed strange been called my collection . Also I  have found some new , older finds and gifted ammonites that I have never shown before so it should be entertaining.  I hope you don’t mind seeing a few duplicates in the next weeks  post. I will post 3 specimens now and a couple of more every week. My dyslexia is very time consuming so this thread will keep me busy to Christmas and beyond. 

 

Thanks for looking Bobby

British Lower Lias, Lower Jurassic Ammonite Cluster "Marston Marble" from Marston Magna, Somerset, England. U.K.

A nice, varied collection, Bobby. Do you only have ammo's from Britain, or are there others yet to be shown?
