JURASSIC BELEMNITE (POLISHED)

160 million years old

Peterborough, Cambridgeshire
 
A large example of a belemnite from the Oxford Clay. It has been repaired, which is common for belemnites of this size, and has then been polished.

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 presented in a lidded gift box.
