Hereโ€™s one of our Golden Cannon Balls, this one with just the top half polished! ๐ŸคฏThese nodules (rocks) are made from limestone but coated with Iron Pyrite on the outside, aka fools gold ๐Ÿคฉ 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
What better a way to settle into my new University accommodation than having my room decorated in fossils like these ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ This is a calcified ammonite from the Lower Lias of Yorkshire, though I have Ichthyosaur bones and teeth here too! Iโ€™ll get some pics of them in and around the city, will do as a study break if nothing else ๐Ÿคฃ #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
Hereโ€™s an Ichthyosaur jaw, from a cliff fall at Saltwick Bay last year โ›๐Ÿณ The preservation is superb! (Exposed by my dadโ€™s excellent preparation skills) ๐Ÿ”ฌ 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 beastโ€™s jaws can also be seen ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป #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
Hereโ€™s a gorgeous patch of preserved Crinoidea from the Upper Lias, Lower Jurassic of Yorkshire. ๐Ÿค— The classic โ€˜starfishโ€™ 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! ๐ŸŽ’ I couldnโ€™t help but stop to admire this fossil ๐Ÿ˜ 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
Hereโ€™s one of our rarest finds from this year! ๐Ÿคจ Although small, if you swipe along you can see a close-up of this rather rare fossil! Can anyone see what it is? Thereโ€™s skin preservation on it! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž As you can tell from my dadโ€™s bloody finger, it wasnโ€™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
Hereโ€™s the pile of cracked-open ammonite nodules, one of our best hauls from Saltwick Bay UK โ› We cracked these open whilst down the beach and they revealed these stunning specimens of Hildoceras sp. and Dactylioceras sp. ammonite fossils โ› They were literally laid amongst this shingle within this photo! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ #natural #nature #ancient #animals #wildlife #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #learn #minerals #paleontology #england #crystal #whitby #earth #jewelry #dorset #geology #university #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #reptile #beach #uk #gem #fossils #fossil
๐ŸŠ Hereโ€™s a selection of a few of our pieces of fossil Crocodile jaws! ๐ŸŠ ๐Ÿ˜ณ 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! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜ 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! ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ The jaw at the top was found by my brother @01shaesmith10 ! He is mad keen on fishing ๐ŸŽฃ ๐ŸŸ ๐Ÿ  Check his page for all things fishing ๐Ÿ˜‰ #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
185,000,000 years old! โ›๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป This sea-worn limestone nodule (rock) was picked up from the beach and shingle in the foreshore of this video! ๐Ÿ We carried it up the cliff along with other rocks and broke them open whilst taking in the breathtaking view of Kettleness looking onto Runswick Bay UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ˜ #video #hammer #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
๐Ÿฆ€ This 185 million year old fossil was found at Kettleness UK, near Whitby. Itโ€™s a type of โ€œDacโ€, scientifically known as Dactylioceras. It came from high up in cliff from the Alum Shales, whereas the cliffs lower down within this photo are Bituminous Shales, rich in hydrocarbon residue called Bitumen. #natural #nature #ancient #animals #wildlife #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #slime #minerals #paleontology #sea #color #whitby #earth #jewelry #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #reptile #beach #stone #rock #fossils #fossil
๐Ÿ‹ Hereโ€™s the first look at one of the latest fossil marine reptiles we have been preparing! ๐Ÿ‘€ This large slab is actually a chunk of a 6 foot long nodule (rock) containing a fossil Plesiosaur! Held in my hands are a rib and a vertebrae... more vertebrae in the photos if you swipe along ๐Ÿ˜† I feel so privileged to be able to hold this really rare specimen and canโ€™t wait to show the prepared slab once the rock has been removed, as well as the creature as a whole! This particular slab contains 2 large limb bones, each a foot long! ๐Ÿฆ–๐Ÿฆ• #Plesiosaur #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
This exposed ammonite fossil was wedged in between two huge sandstone boulders by the sea! We managed to get it out quickly enough though ๐Ÿ˜‰ #natural #nature #ancient #animals #art #ammonite #ammonites #dinosaur #slime #minerals #paleontology #sea #news #whitby #earth #jewelry #dorset #geology #charmouth #palaeontology #jurassic #yorkshire #coast #instagram #beach #stone #rock #fossils #fossil
Tap, tap, tap ... crack! โ›โ›Revealing a 185 Million Year Old ammonite is always satisfying, but when they break open like this it adds to the experience! Weโ€™re so lucky to be able to do this on a regular basis ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜† This was filmed at Runswick Bay UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง #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
