80kg rock with foreign object in.....

Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

spotted this on a recent holiday in the UK to the south coast ( Dorset - the Jurassic coast ).

the rock was approx. 250kg and I got it down to 80kg to get it in the car.

the reason was I noticed this strange raised disc edge shape within the rock which does not appear man made.

the rock is extremely hard.

I plan to start removing the rock to expose more of it as I'm curious.

any ideas as to if this is even a fossil and if so what it could be.

I think it could be an ammonite, as I believe they are found at that location.

I agree that it's probably an ammonite and it could very well be nicely preserved under that matrix. It would be good if you could find someone with experience to help you get it prepped out. Here's a good link to show you how it's done and what the results may be.
