Ammonites are the fossilised remains of an extinct member of the mollusc family, which lived millions of years ago deep beneath the sea. Found in predominately limestone rocks, they are relatively abundant on Charmouth Beach in Dorset – part of the natural Jurassic World Heritage Coast of Britain. Although they are still to be found with careful searching, it is better to admire the beautiful convoluted shape without removing it from its natural setting. This attractive garden plaque makes an environmentally friendly and attractive decoration for the wall of a geologist, for gardeners or anyone with an interest in the natural world. The design was originally commissioned by Charmouth Post Office, on the Dorset coast.
Fixing Points: One hole: in the recess just in from the flatish end of the ammonite
