Cracked open a nodule from Whitby, found near to the jetty and there's signs of an ammonite inside which looks like spines or is it just attached matrix?

Quite a lot of ammonites have spines and I'm sure Andy will ID for you but may need more preparation

Peronoceras ammonite - they do have spines.

Thanks Bobothebear,

My preparation skills are fairly limited I'm afraid, (hammer and small cold chisel) nothing more precise to use at the moment, hence only the peaking ammonite. I've smashed enough in half already with my primitive hand.

Which side would you try to take off, the top bit or the bottom bit (as shown on the photo) any advice would be a huge help

regards

Darren

Hi AndyS,

Thanks for your reply, any thoughts if the one pictured above is an Peronoceras ammonite or does there need to be more ammonite showing for a better I.D

Regards

Darren
