Here’s another great collector piece that’s sure to please the fossil/ammonite/or mineral collector. This is a cluster of pyritized Crucilobiceras ammonites from the UK Jurassic. A few years ago, I bought a number of these ammonites from an English collector. The location is the famous Black Ven Pentacrinites beds (see my other auction) which is reknowned for its pyrite layer. Not much is left of the formation anymore and what is left on the market usually comes from private collections. This is another excellent investment piece that you should be able to get at a good price. The golden mineralization on these fossils is absoutely stunning. They literally have a solid metallic heft. I selected this one because it consisted of three larger ammonites and at least nine smaller ones clustered around them. It’s a real eye catcher.
