Embedded Ammonites

A touch of the Jurassic Coast

Making your swing seat a really unique piece of garden furniture is one of our favourite things, embedding ammonites into the seats and benches is a really popular choice. 

Ammonites

Ammonites are a huge part of our Lyme Regis heritage. Based on the stunning Jurassic Coast, fossil-finding here is world-renowned. 

Ammonites lived during the periods of Earth history known as the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Together, these represent a time interval of about 140 million years. The ammonites became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Period, at roughly the same time as the dinosaurs disappeared.

They are commonly found as fossils, formed when the remains or traces of the animal became buried sediment that later solidified into rock. What better way to showcase this heritage than to inset a polished ammonite in to your swing seat? 

Watch our video as Sitting Spiritually founder Martin Young shows you exactly what we do and the options available.

Embedding Ammonites

Each ammonites is polished and prepared to be embedded into the location of your choice on your swing seat, bench or day bed. 

Popular placements include the middle of the back, the larger section of the swirl back or on the arm. 

Ammonites are set in resin and can be left out all year round. 

Our ammonites are usually between 50 and 60mm in diameter, but each fossil is unique.

Mary Anning

An English fossil collector and palaeontologist

Mary was famous for finding some incredible fossils in the Jurassic marine fossil beds that can be found in the cliffs along the English Channel at Lyme Regis.

An important woman in our collective history, her findings contributed to changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life and the history of the Earth.

Key discoveries included:

  • the first correctly identified ichthyosaur skeleton
  • the first two nearly complete plesiosaur skeletons
  • the first pterosaur skeleton located outside of Germany

Without Mary, we wouldn't know so much about the ammonites which we can decoratively embed in your swing seats, day beds and benches.
