FOSSIL BELEMNITE ON MUDSTONE MATRIX - Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

Home > FOSSILS > AMMONITES AND THEIR RELATIVES

JURASSIC BELEMNITE
with a sprinkling of golden pyrite
 
160 million years old 
Oxford Clay

Peterborough, Cambridgeshire

Belemnites are extinct squid-like sea creatures that were very common during the age of the dinosaurs, a period of the Earth's history when much of England was submerged beneath warm seas.  The unique bullet-shaped internal shell, called a guard, is all that remains of them. 

This fossil was collected in the 1980s when several brick pits were in operation in the Peterborough area. It is complete with phragmocone, and is situated on a layer of mudstone. A smaller belemnite is also present, together with crushed ammonite shells.
