Hildoceras and Harpoceras Ilminster Ammonites. Both Approx. 95mm diameter From the Beacon Limestone Formation (‘Junction Bed’).

Difficulty: ★ ★ Moderate. Relatively easy to clean. Engraver or an air pen (air scribe). Would benefit from air abrasive if you have it.

With these ammonites, there is no guarantee that they will be complete to the centre. Many ammonites from this locality are slightly damaged.

Would be good for cutting/polishing or prepping. Many are crystalline.
