Hey peeps. This is a random one, I took the kids for a day out to lyme Regis in Dorset today and whilst looking for fossils I came across this. See pictures, anyway I took it into the local fossil shop and the lady said it's a rare find as the gold is still attacked to the rock and there's also a slight ammunite on the rock. Can anyone give any extra info on this please, it's something I'm going to keep as a ornament but i really would love to know more about it

Just to add the kids and I absolutely loved fossil hunting, we had some really good finds today. Can see it being a new hobby for us all.

Looks like a nice pyrite cube, fools gold I'm afraid.
