Nice nodule I collected today from #charmouth plenty of small ammonites all over it so hoping there might be something bigger on the inside! #fossils #paleo
Down #Charmouth collecting #fossils today and found this sweet little piece of pottery
Probably one of my better preps to date 😁. All finished and amongst the collection proudly. I found this a few weeks back at Port Mulgrave. Be heading back out at the end of the month, although I think it’s time I started searching for some Lower Lias stuff. Can’t let @whitbyammonites6472 have all the fun now can we 😉
Here’s one of our Golden Cannon Balls, this one with just the top half polished! 🤯These nodules (rocks) are made from limestone but coated with Iron Pyrite on the outside, aka fools gold 🤩 The ammonite is an Eleganticeras, from Yorkshire! #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
My first time at the beach experiencing the waves 🌊 I loved it! Mum found some fossils too she’s such an old biddy 😂 #charmouth #beach #jurrassiccoast
What better a way to settle into my new University accommodation than having my room decorated in fossils like these 😍😍 This is a calcified ammonite from the Lower Lias of Yorkshire, though I have Ichthyosaur bones and teeth here too! I’ll get some pics of them in and around the city, will do as a study break if nothing else 🤣 #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
@yorkshire.fossils : "Tap, tap, tap ... crack! ⛏⛏Revealing a 185 Million Year Old ammonite is always satisfying, but when they break open like this it adds to the experience! We’re so lucky to be able to do this on a regular basis 😎😆 This was filmed at Runswick Bay UK" 🇬🇧 #tap #crack #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #film #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #filming #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Just a quick test of the new dust extractor with air abrasive and this sticky Promicroceras sp. ammonite in a small scrap of limestone. Figured I'd also see if I could get some time-lapse footage as well. Didn't take long at all to clean this ammonite, in fact it took longer to create the 'bowl' around the outside edge! Air abrasive isn't the 'be all and end all' of fossil preparation but it does have its place. It can often help with ammonite preparation when the shell doesn't want to come away from the calcite mould underneath, and at times when the surrounding rock doesn't want to come away from the shell. Its main use is for applying finishing touches or careful removal of material too small to remove with air chisels. There wasn't a great deal of covering material on this ammonite, which made it very quick to prepare but the majority of fossils take much, much longer on average. Approximately 195 million years old and found at Charmouth, Dorset. #lymeregis #charmouth #charmouthheritagecentre #dorset #devon #fossilcollector #fossilhunter #fossilpreparation #paleontology #palaeontology #cephalopod #ammonite #promicroceras #beachfinds
Here’s an Ichthyosaur jaw, from a cliff fall at Saltwick Bay last year ⛏🐳 The preservation is superb! (Exposed by my dad’s excellent preparation skills) 🔬 You can see the groove where the teeth would have sat, since Ichthyosaurs had grooves not teeth, not sockets. Muscle attachment holes for the powerful beast’s jaws can also be seen 💪🏻💪🏻 #Ichthyosaur #jaw #fossil #fossils #jaws #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
Using two hammers to 'pop' an asti can be the best way to do this sometimes, it gives you perfect control and rules out a bad split by an inaccurate hammer blow. This asteroceras sp. ammonite is from a very rare horizon where the preservation is more often than not very poor, hence the body chamber splitting through the middle. That said, this is a great example from this horizon. . . #fossil #ammonite #beauty #jurassic #jurassiccoast #animals #lymeregis #dorset #geology #palaeontology #minerals #shells #stones #charmouth #beachcombing #outdoors fossils #asteroceras #shells #stones #dinosaurs #rock #heritage #collection #hunting #rare #unique
I’m not usually one to buy fossils, as I would much rather collect and prepare myself, but after visiting the Bakewell show over the weekend, I couldn’t resist this absolute stunning piece 🤩. Two Arnioceras inside of the mouth boarder of a Nautilus. This will proudly sit on my collection. More of the details of this piece and where it was found are in the last picture. I can’t stop looking at it 😮
Thumbs up!! 👍 Bagged a good asti thanks 🙏 to Storm ⛈ Callum and the big waves 🌊it threw up, rare colours too! The sea churned the beach up good and proper and left this one conveniently in my path where it was easy to see 👀 . . #fossil #ammonite #beauty #lymeregis #charmouth #jurassic #jurassiccoast #outdoors #dorset #shells #stones #beauty #geology #fossils #animals #palaeontology #minerals #stones #asteroceras #dinosaurs #beachcombing #nature #natural #rocks #thumbsup
Here is a Victorian Whitby Jet button I found. Its beautifully engraved. Jet, often found and worked in Whitby and was very popular in the Victorian period, thanks to Queen Vic and her years of mourning. Jet itself is a fossil from the Monkey Puzzle Trees, which are still around today, although quite rare, often found in Arboretums. Anyway, very sweet, happy find.👍 #FossilHunting #LymeRegis #Jurassic #JurassicCoast #LymeBay #Charmouth #Whitby #Fossilhunt #Fossils #Fossil #beachcombing #beachcomber #mudlarking #mudlarker #QueenVictoria #WhitbyJet #MonkeyPuzzleTree #Paleontology
I have just handed in my notice at the Lyme Regis Museum. Excited to start my new job and move onwards and upwards. Although i won't be near the coast as much and no longer working with fossils you can guarentee i'll still be out collecting. Quite excited to start getting back into fossiling as a hobby and a release from work, rather than having it as a reminder. Thanks to those of you I've worked with who have made my time so enjoyable!
It’s Monday again which means it’s time for another exercise. Let me know how you get on with this💪👏 #fitagain #challenge #exercise #instafit #personaltrainer #mondaymotivation #lymeregis #axminster #charmouth #mondayblues #health #letsdothis #calories #pushups #burpees #tricepsworkout #fitness #workouts
Here’s a gorgeous patch of preserved Crinoidea from the Upper Lias, Lower Jurassic of Yorkshire. 🤗 The classic ‘starfish’ appearance is fully on show, it is the cross-section of the arms of this animal. This was at Sandsend, spotted whilst walking away from the beach with some Plesiosaur bones in our backpacks! 🎒 I couldn’t help but stop to admire this fossil 😍 We left it in-situ for some other fossil hunters to check out! #crinoid #crinoidea #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock

Here’s one of our rarest finds from this year! 🤨 Although small, if you swipe along you can see a close-up of this rather rare fossil! Can anyone see what it is? There’s skin preservation on it! 😍😎 As you can tell from my dad’s bloody finger, it wasn’t easy to extract from the large boulder! #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock

The treble Tenuicostatum block I found a while back is no longer a treble. The top little one was was unfortunately not all there, and just didn’t look right (says the guy who’s left one with the outer whorl knackered, although I do still have that piece to glue back on at some point). So I have left it as a double. Pretty pleased with how this prep has gone, especially with the bowling out which I haven’t done much of before. Not a bad piece if I do say so myself 😁

After 195,000,000 million years of solitary confinement, Brandon @lymeregisfossils reveals this microderoceras birchi ammonite from its stoney tomb! Storm Callum threw up several of these nodules from an old landslide on the Jurassic Coast of Dorset 🇬🇧 this is one of several finds we had yesterday. #fossils #fossil #outdoors #beauty #charmouth #lymeregis #dorset #geology #ammonite #ammonites #jurassic #jurassiccoast #microderoceras #storm #animals #dinosaurs #palaeontology #geology #minerals #shells #stones #fossilhunting #hobby #art #craft #devon #southwest
After another successful and busy days trading at Bridport Market, this is our favourite receptacle brought by a customer for refilling so far!! A vintage Royals mug, which our customer bought on the market and then decided to use for refilling with washing up liquid, to decanter at home using a funnel into her washing up bottle. We've now been trading for 10 weeks, and to see our customers bloom and begin to change the way they are thinking, breaking out of the box and approaching their zero waste journey with imagination and an open mind, is truly heart warming and rewarding! #bethechange #shopthegreenweigh 🚚🌿 . . #zerowaste #lessplastic #plasticfreeproduce #plasticfreeshopping #uselessplastic #saynotosingleuse #zerowasteliving #zerowasteshopping #zerowasteshop #saveouroceans #passonplastic #plasticfreeshop #mobileshop #shoponwheels #bridport #dorchester #axminster #lymeregis #charmouth #netherbury #bridportlife
🐊 Here’s a selection of a few of our pieces of fossil Crocodile jaws! 🐊 😳 They are a mix of upper and lower jaws and we have since been lucky to find a number of complete skulls! The upper and lower jaw piece, second from the top and filled with razor sharp teeth, was found by my mum @neptunes.locker and is one of our favourite finds to date! 🤩😍 If you love driftwood art, her page is thee page to follow; her creations are bespoke and resonate with the quality material washed up naturally along the Yorkshire Coast! 🏖 🏝 The jaw at the top was found by my brother @01shaesmith10 ! He is mad keen on fishing 🎣 🐟 🐠 Check his page for all things fishing 😉 #natural #nature #fossil #fossils #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #awesome #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #geologist #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock
🎥 Camera in left hand, 🔨 hammer in right hand makes for shakey footage!! 😄 where's Brandon @lymeregisfossils when you need him, hey? ..... probably on his📱 phone 🙄!!! Anyway here I am awkwardly splitting and 🎥 filming the opening of a Woodstone I found, and low and behold, there's a big piece of wood in it!!! There's also a nice little prom. Splitting down the stone further I found a dozen or so very well preserved ammonites of the species promicroceras. . . #fossils #fossil #animals #outdoors #beauty #charmouth #lymeregis #dorset #geology #ammonite #ammonites #jurassic #jurassiccoast #beachcombing #palaeontology #minerals #shells #stones #woodstone #promicroceras #beachcombing #dinosaurs #shells #storm #sea
David Attenborough's sea dragon still on display at the heritage centre on Charmouth beach. The ichthyosaur fossil featured in a BBC documentary this year. The man who found it - local legend Chris Moore - was out there this morning. After last night's storm, conditions were perfect. Dorset's Jurassic Coast is one of the best places in the world for fossils. We took the kids and returned with a treasure trove of ammonites, bellemites and even some coprolite... dinosaur poo! What a beautiful place.

It's worth keeping an eye out for small fragments of fossil bearing stones. This piece came from Charmouth, a layer of limestone within the Charmouth Mudstone Member known as 'Yellowstone'. The ammonites in this stone are often referred to as 'sticky', meaning the usual weakness of the shell between the surrounding rock and the calcite mould within does not want to pop away readily. To get the most out of these ammonites it often requires extra time and effort to reveal them, and from a commercial point of view is not seen as viable. I however really like tackling these pieces and they can offer up some wonderful little finds as a result. This had the edge of the largest ammonite worn through and the merest hint of two more. Upon working through there are also many tiny ammonites washed up around the outside! Plenty of character in this little fragment and just goes to show that not all pieces should be dismissed out of hand without giving them a chance. There is much beauty to be found in the small things, if we just look a little closer. Approximately 195 million years old. #lymeregis #charmouth #charmouthheritagecentre #dorset #devon #fossilcollector #fossilhunter #fossilpreparation #paleontology #palaeontology #cephalopod #ammonite #promicroceras
