Books are good. 

But ammonites are better!

Thank you very much @Troodon I often think about that too. I suppose that is the wonderment  off fossil collecting .

 A small collection  Graphoceratid I believe they have had different names in the past and are now also I think thought be a morphospecies. Classic old school collectors favourite .

@ynot thank you very much for your kind comments .  At one time this ammonite was a must have for a collector in the uk.

Nice stuff, do these come out looking like this or do they require prep work to clean them up.

@Troodon they require a little preparation which was done in the early 90s. I think I may try at some point to re-prep them with more modern techniques but I do like the old school look to them. They hold a little bit of nostalgia for me.

 

Thank you for the kind comments 

cheers Bobby

Nice, even though it's not pyrite! ;)

Yes, I think Asteroceras is a good call.

Thank you very much Andy @-Andy- . I would like to pass on the compliment to you.  I have enjoyed very much looking at your Dinosaurs fossil collection. Very informative and you have some stunning fossils. Recently I won the Hell Creek lot on the Grand Christmas auction which I am really happy with. This has now sparked an interest in reading and learning a lot more about Dinosaurs from  the post on TFF

 

Cheers bobby
