This week I worked on a few fossils - however a broken compressor and a private prep job meant that I did not get much chance to do a huge amount.
1. Eoderoceras Bispinigerum
This is a rare one - I think it is from the Hummocky limestone. The last Eoderoceras I found in the hummocky was registered as the first of it's kind found on the Jurassic Coast. I could however be wrong as I need to wash the matrix a bit. The ammonites preservation is very similar to most found in the Hummocky - not pretty but a bit different!
Found by either my friend or myself on Stonebarrow beach this is the first Beaniceras I have prepped from Charmouth. It is a lovely little rare ammonite and prepps really well.
Another small ammonite - quite common but it retains a faint iridescence and is from a different stone to the usual green ammonite nodules they come from.
I found this a few weeks ago poking out of a broken green nodule. Quite small but rarer than the more common androgynoceras ammonites.
A relatively large (nothing as big as last weeks one!) Androgynoceras from a green nodule I found a while back at Charmouth beach. It is pretty perfect with some brilliant colours.
