With over over twenty specimens prepared within the limestone multi block, this is a charming display piece and unique. Fossils from this region and of this quality and being so well preserved and cleaned by an expert hand, (micro conservation techniques using the latest compressed air tool equipment) make this block of fossil ammonites a joy to behold. Very much a serious enthusiasts collector specimen.
The two tone light brown to dark chocolate ammonite umbilicus (shell), picked out against the grey limestone shale (please refer to the images above), each in its original position, as when laid down into the silty seabed of the Jurassic eons ago. The layers and umbilicus have a good three dimensional depth, causing shadow when lit dramatically, causing the group to exhibit very well.
Rarity and Location wise this fossil group is from an excellent stable, the north western Isles and particually of the Isle of Skye producing some fine specimens. A rugged terrain, even in fair weather the Bearreraig Bay has, as the rest of Skye, some of Scotlands most wonderful views across the Atlantic and towards other Isles around its shores. Among the coves and inlets are found wonderful specimen fossils, the ancient visitors of the past, which if one is lucky enough can be resurrected from the Scottish coastal areas.
