Very nice, but I think you may find your imaginary line is a bit optimistic. Don't forget Ammonites are not circular, thay are spirals. This means they get smaller a lot faster than expected.

Hey,
 

Well I made it over to Runswick and Port Mulgrave, loved it. It was the first time I have ever been fossil hunting, we also visited Whitby, lovely place, so clean and Catpain Cooks boat ride was great...

 

OK well here is what I found, I have an idea what most of it is but if anyone could id the others, that would be great.

Brittle Star fish. I think!

Dino egg!!  hehe, I collected this and told my wife and little boy that it was a dino egg, just as a joke. However after breaking it open!!! see below, I will chip away a little more once I get all the correct tools I need.

I think this is part Ammonite.

I found these two peices interesting, full of Ammonites, I gunna have a go at cutting some out.

 

I hope you like what I found, I did find more but put a lot back and kept some but a few of the same species.

 

Any info on the pics would be great, I am now planning a trip to Charmouth in August, can't wait.

 

Thanks

Neil

Hi Neil,
I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to the North Yorkshire coast
I'm afraid your first pic is not a brittle star - I would say it's a waterworn piece of a septarian nodule, more likely.

Anyway, well done

Anywhere for little ammonites, twice as far for big ones!

I think your lower bone fragment is infact a crinoid stem section. Some nice finds for a first attempt, well done Thumbs Up
Have a nice day :0)

Nice finds Coolcroc. I have also recently been to Runswick bay and would like to share some pics of my finds. It does seem that there are quite a few of nodules with ammonite concetrations at Runswick bay. A really interesting site which is worth a visit.

Harpoceras falciferum ?

Inoceramus sp.

Bivalve ( any idea of the species?)

Part of a large ammonite?

I found this boulder already split in half and left on the shore. Obviously the collector who discarded this piece had missed the huge ammonite peeking out of it and placed the chisel on the 
wrong direction.
I am going to try to glue the two pieces back and prepare it as a whole.

A imaginary line of the ammonite in the boulder.

The bivalve looks like Oxytoma sp from the pic.

Thanks for the ID prep01.
Yes, I might have exaggerated the size of the ammonite. 
From the section view, the diameter seems to be around 12.5cm. I can also see small ammonites
embedded in the same plane.
