These ammonites have been kindly donated from a lifetime’s collection, for the fundraising benefit for the museum. Having been out collecting together over the years, in 2018, a close collector friend of Steve Etches donated all of his collection of Kimmeridge fossils and others in his collection, to The Etches Collection for posterity and these are currently being catalogued on site.

Whilst the ammonites offered for sale here are finds from elsewhere out in the field, and from all over the world, collected under license, these formed part of his invaluable donation to the museum and offer the opportunity for collectors of all ages to own an ammonite with real provenance.

Each unique piece is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and description from the Etches Collection and every item sold contributes to the development of the museum for future generations.
