Internal flint mould of a Spondylus bivalve

Spondylus internal flint mould

Complete Spondylus bivalves are relatively uncommon at the best of times, but to find one complete albeit without its associated spines that protruded from the shell in life, this specimen is the best example in flint I’ve seen along the Sussex coast. The specimen was found in the early 1990s by myself during one of many family walks along the beach.
