the ammonite was found at port mulgrave and the wood on whitby bay , also any good web sites or books recomended i to help me ID the ammonites would be great as i have no idea of the specific types and if they are rare or not, thanks.
Your welcome. Sorry I couldn't ID your fossil wood. I know more about carboniferous plant fossils, but there is so many species from the Jurassic it's hard to tell. I do know it's 'driftwood', though because the Whitby area was under sea then, so the wood must have washed out to sea, sunk to the bottom and then fossilised.
thanks tadfish and dan yes the pyrite is what caught my eye there was only a small amount of it exposed when i found it but it really shined in the sunlight i have several others in nodules that i am hoping to clean up at some point hopfully they will turn out nice
Yes I will make sure I use a mask when prepping I haven't done many at the moment but hopefully will find the time to do some more shortly, thanks very much for you help and advice :)
If it's Dac's you like prepping then you can be very selective around Whitby, if you catch the beach conditions rite there are many to chose from.
I was once told 'if it prep's on the beach then it will prep at home' so when you have an abundance of Dac's try splitting them on the beach, this will sort out the best ones to prep at home and save carrying a lot of weight.
