A really nice example that has been sliced through, ground gem smooth and finally a high polish applied to reveal astonishing detail within the cross-sections of ammonites (Promicroceras planicosta). A lovely drawer specimen for the collector of fine and rare fossils. Approximately 200 million years old.
This beautifully preserved solid calcite specimen was described by BUCKMAN. Fossils from this famous locality are becoming almost impossible to find thesedays due in part to overcollecting by schools, universities, colleges and private individuals. This fantastic example was discovered in 1981 and has been fully prepared. The ammonite itself lies on an aesthetic piece of matrix which also has a level base for display purposes. Approximately 175 million years old.
