Show us your Hash Plates


Bobby Rico

Recommended Posts

Hash plates are among my favourite of fossils and they are fantastic to photograph. So please add some of your  beautiful photographs of your stunning  plates. 

 

Properly one of my favourite Hash Plate. I found it in a river in Wales Uk when I was 16 and camping  . It reminds me of the The Nazca Lines , Nazca Desert, in southern Peru.

A friend gave me a few years ago a Cretaceous plate with a few ammonites in it (from France) - I'll see if I can dig out some pics :)

@Tidgy's Dad That Lytoceras is making me moderately jealous ;) (how to say... my favourite planispiral ammonite..)
