Collected in the 1970's is this matrix free and very interesting jaw section. The jaw has many teeth and is very well preserved. This specimen would make an ideal drawer specimen. One for the collector !!
This highly aesthetic display ammonite has been beautifully prepared in the middle of a large limestone nodule, "Bowl" effect. Specimens of this quality take a lot of time to get to this high standard. The ammonite itself is a good size and is a classic from the Green Ammonite beds of Stonebarrow. An ideal display piece.
These polished Scunthorpe ammonites are amongst the most sought after ammonites on the planet! This particular specimen has had the outer shell removed and then a gem grade polish applied to reveal the beautiful calcified chambers exhibiting colours of cream,pink and honey coloured brown. Sadly, these items are no longer collected due to the iron mines being now used for landfill. The specimen has a cut base and an anti-scratch/slip pad attached enabling easy display. The specimen is approximately 200 million years old.
