£180.00Price

A fantastic multi-ammonite block.  It contains Promicroceras, Microderoceras, Cymbites & Caenisites ammonites.  This type of nodule is sometimes known as a 'Popcorn nodule'  as the ammonites appear on the surface.  These blocks aren't very common and can only be found on extreme low tides which occur at most once a year.  They are also extremely tricky to prepare and only a few people have the skill and equipment to prepare them.
