description  
This rare and fantastic highly decorative solid calcite ammonite has taken many hours to prepare to this very high standard. The outer shell has been ground off, then a gem smooth finish applied and finally a professional polish. The ammonite itself lies in a generous and aesthetic piece of matrix. The colours are very autumnal displaying browns, creams and greys with the odd fleck of orange. The centre is perfect and the sutures very clear throughout. Please be aware of fake fossils and composite fossils being sold on some other fossil websites, it is very important you check with your supplier before purchasing any item as to the authenticity of the fossil. We have noticed a significant increase in this practise. The matrix has a cut and level base which also has attached an anti-slip and scratch pad for peace of mind when displaying on furniture or stone flooring. Approximately 171 million years old.
