This beautifully preserved and highly decorative solid calcite ammonite has been fully prepared and lies in an aesthetic chunk of very hard mudstone which has a cut base for upright display. The ammonites colours are different shades of brown. This superb zonal ammonite is a classic from this world famous fossil locality and would be a unique acquisition for an interior designer. Approximately 200 million years old.
Ammonites and fossilised wood together always make an aesthetic combination. Here we have a solid calcite Promicroceras alongside a fragment of wood from the ancient Monkey Puzzle Tree. The matrix has a cut base for ease of display and is approximately 200 million years old.
This large example has an immaculate pinpoint centre and has been preserved in solid calcite. Quality specimens such as this one are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain thesedays, due in part, to several localities not allowing collectors on their land anymore. The matrix is level for upright display purposes and is approximately 180 million years old.
