JURASSIC AMMONITE
(BOTH HALVES OF A NODULE)

180 million years old


Upper Lias
Near Whitby, Yorkshire

 
An example of a nodule that has been 'popped' open to reveal a Jurassic ammonite. It's a nice thing that sits comfortably in the palm of the hand, and it's a surprise when the ammonite inside is revealed. Nodules like this containing ammonites are known as 'popping stones'.

Ammonites are extinct marine shellfish that were common during the age of the dinosaurs, a period of the Earth's history when much of England was submerged beneath warm seas.
