looking forward to any information
beckie and jake
Beckie and Jake,
There's plenty of info on ammonites here
Seeing as they came from Scarborough, I know a man who might be able to give you a more detailed answer than I can, since that's part of his 'patch'.
Tabfish... (fingers crossed, he'll look-in within the day).
Meanwhile, I can assure you that they are a lot more than 'a few' million years old!
Thankyou for the link Mike we cannot believe they could be 66 million years old. We was only looking for nice looking shells.But got the bug and spent a few more hours looking for more we came across a few unusual things which hopefully you could identify for me and Jake . Thanks
Hello Beckie and Jake.
May I apologise for not seeing this post before now, in your first image you have a Multi Block - Death Assemblance of Lower Jurassic - Lower Lias ammonites, hard to put an exact id on them but I would go for Arnioceras kridiodes?
Second image too water worn but probably an ammonite from the Arnioceras family.
Third image (after enlarging it) a Arnioceras semicostatum from the Lower Jurassic - Lower Lias.
Nice finds - well done.
