Recent work

August 11, 2018

Finally with a full working fossil prep set up I got through a few of the recent nodules I had picked up on Charmouth beach, I also finished a few pieces of prep work for other people. 

 

1.  Gleviceras, Charmouth

I found this after a recent period of stormy weather, it's not the best ammonite but it's certainly the largest I have found! It's 27 cm across it's widest part. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Belemnite Stone death bed, Charmouth

This piece was a bit of a gamble, the belemnite stone is often sparsely populated with ammonites but in this piece I was rather lucky, it contains several Beaniceras, Belemnites and a Tragophyloceras. There are also broken sections of Liparoceras in the matrix which my be why there are so many ammonites in one small space. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Androgynoceras, Charmouth

I really like preparing these little nodules - the ammonites often fill the nodule! I found this on Charmouth beach a few weeks ago

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Tragophyloceras, Seatown

This was a customer preparation, the nodule was one of the hardest I have ever encountered but the end result was nice. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Double Androgynoceras, Charmouth. 

Another small nodule with a couple of nice surprises inside! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Androgynoceras, Charmouth

This was featured in my previous blog post, I found this nodule a little while ago and now with my abrasive set up working again I got it finished! It's slightly different to most of the Androgynoceras I have worked on as it's pathalogical - showing deformed ribs on the second whorl in.
