    If you know were to look you WILL find many more of these small/micro pyritic ammonites, infact much smaller than the one you have pictured.

    I will post an image of some of my pyritic ammonite collection from the Holderness.

        As promised, images of some of my pyritic ammonite collection from the Holderness.

        To find these I have looked were the iron pyrites has settled in a 'mass' were thing's of a similar density collect together.

            Glad to see you were out fossiling today (so was I) although the low water tide time and size was very poor for collecting at this time of year, when I was younger I went fossiling regularly twice in a day on the Holderness when the tides were good (longest day etc May/June two lows in daylight).

            It would not be the first time I have put back together bit's of a fossil that someone has broken into many peices and left on the beach so look at what's left and think can I put it back together and RESTORE it to it's former glory.

            I have a couple of images to show you although my spelling is poor

            My best find from today was this death assemblance/Multi block containing the Lower Lias/Lower Jurassic ammonite Arniocers sp it is about 6in across and the block split really well.

            A couple of images that I have attached of minerals that you can find (although this specimen was not found on the Holderness)  along with the small pyritic ammonites on the Holderness.
