Sea Bed Mortality Slab (image shows the underside of the slab, it’s been ground and polishes to show the vast numbers of compacted shells).

This portion of a slab is made up of hundreds of Snails, Clams and Ammonites. At one point in time these many creatures died at the same time, clustered at the floor of the ocean and were fossilised by Permineralisation, frozen in time forever.

The Jurassic Period 200 million years ago.
