Belemnites are extinct caphalopods which lived during the Jurassic period over 150 million years ago, they were squid like animals which lived within a smooth, long shell similar to orthoceras and ammonites. These particular shell fossil have been polished, making the shell even smoother and has a shine to it. They are roughly 10 cm in length and have a slightly darker complexion compared to our other polished belemnites. Like some species of ammonites belemnites also have various folklore attached to them, the most common being that it was believed they were the strike points for lightning, and so were called 'thunderbolts' or 'devils's fingers'. The specimens are supplied in a card tray with an information label, they make ideal gifts for children who are just starting out their own fossil collection.
