Interesting... the preservation looks very good. Do you know what part of the Permian these are from?

Extremely interesting Ammonoids here. Maybe do you know the names ? And the exact Permian age ?

Amazing specimens ! I'd never seen pyritized Permian ammonoids. It seems that these specimens are essentially Middle Permian forms (Roadian and Wordian). From the shell shape and the detail of the suture :

photo 3 represents probably the Pseudohaloritidae Sangzhites aberrans

photo 6 : a Kufengoceratin Cyclolobidae : Tongluceras or Paratongluceras

photo 7 and 8 : those are clearly Pseudogastrioceratinae (or idae), they belong probably at one or two of these very similar genera, all known in southern China : Roadoceras, Altudoceras, Daubichites, and the endemic Chekiangoceras (its difficult to decide even with more photos showing other views).
