Fossil Rootlet - Western Australia - RARE

 

This is a simple but unusual fossil.

it is a fossilised rootlet from a tree.
I can't tell you which tree as I don't know, but I am sure with a little research you could find out.

It is from Western Australia and is roughly  1 Million years old

The rootlet is 4.4cm long and 5mm thick

Large Fossil Belemnite - SUPER UK Fossil

This is a super and very large fossil Belemnite.

Belemnites aren't a rare or valuable fossil, but they are a very popular and well collected fossil for UK collectors.
if a novice has collected a fossil from a beach or quarry, it will usually be either an Ammonite or a Belemnite.

These I have to offer are far larger than the normal Belemnites you would collect.
They were collected in the Midlands in England and date from.

You won't receive this exact fossil pictured, but another VERY similar in size and appearance.
I have a large box of these and they vary very little,other than very slight size differences.

The Belemnite you will receive will measure at least 6cm long.
These are large fat fossils and WELL worth what I am asking for them.

Come bagged and labelled.

This is a Mosasaur tooth
The Mosasaur was an early crocodile type marine reptile from the late Cretaceous.
You will receive one of the pictured teeth.

A few of the teeth have slight damage, but this is common with these fragile teeth.
The tooth will come in a padded gem jar and is a super little fossil.

Petrified Wood Chunk

Gorgeous colouration in this fossilised wood.


This super chunk of petrified wood is highly polished - which brings out the wide range of bright colours within the stone and also makes the original layered texture of the wood visible.

RARE - Heliaphora Echinoid

 Strange and unusual echinoid

This is a very odd echinoid and while it's a truly fascinating fossil I really can't tell you a great deal about it.

While most echinoids are easily described and are basically the same as modern sea urchins - this is more of an oddity and has a bizarre flattened shape which then has protruding fingers like a starfish...!

It comes from Senegal in Africa and is approx 5 million years old.

If you know more about it  please let me know!

ULTRA RARE 9 Piece UK Fossil Collection


This is a superb collection of UK fossils
You will receive 7 different bags.
The set you will receive won't be the exact set pictured but will be very similar and some of the sets are better and with higher quality fossils than those pictured.

The fossils are from the Eocene era - 54.8 to 33.7 million years ago

Bivalves - Folkestone - Eocene - 3
Gastropods - Folkestone - 1
Ammonite Suture Patterns - Folkestone - 1
Worm Tubes - Folkestone - 1
Shark Tooth -London Clay, Beltinge - 1
Scaphopod - Folkestone - 1
Crinoid Stem - Fokestone - 1

These fossils were collected by one of the most respected fossil collectors in the UK - and also a published author on UK fossils.
They are the result of MANY, MANY months of collecting.
Unlike Moroccan fossils for example, UK fossils like these just aren't easy to find.
It is the result of many hours of searching, cleaning and sorting through mud and clay.

When these collections are sold, it is unlikely I will have any more of this material to offer.

All the fossils are bagged and labelled and would make a FANTASTIC addition to any fossil collection


ULTRA RARE Boxed Piece Of Whitby Jet


This is a super little naturally polished piece of Whitby Jet.
While not always thought of as a fossil, it really is one.

This piece is a lovely naturally worn piece, worn down smooth by the action of the waves on the beaches where it was collected.
it would be a nice artifact to carry in the pocket and examine when you have a spare moment....!
You won't receive this exact piece, but one very similar and measuring roughly 3cm across.
Boxed and labelled and complete with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Jet is found mainly locally between the cliffs of Whitby and Staithes although mining works have taken place as far inland as Bilsdale, Rosedale and Great Ayton.  Jet is a form of fossilised drift wood created over a period of 120 million years.  it is believed that Jet comes from the Araucaria tree known in the common name of the Monkey puzzle tree.  When the trees became imbedded in a thick layer of sedimentary rock they began to fossilise and turn to Jet.  Jet is a combination of several chemicals the most common being carbon, Hydrogen, nitrogen, sulphur and oxygen.  Trace elements include silicon, potassium, calcium, iron, copper and aluminium.

 

I have spent a long time looking for some Jet to offer with my other fossil items and I plan on making some jewellery with it soon.

 



UNIQUE KT Boundary Material -


EVIDENCE OF THE IMPACT THAT KILLED THE DINOSAURS!!! 

This is a very difficult item to categorise, but I have had to find a section.

 This is a boxed set containing 2 pieces of rock from the legendary KT Boundary.
 As anyone who knows their geology and palaentology will know, is the rock layer that is thought to mark the point at which the Dinosaurs were destroyed by a HUGE meteorite impact.
 These samples come from the Upper Cretaceous Period of Trochu, Alberta - Canada.
