Magnificent is the only word to describe this ammonite half which has been ground gem smooth and a professional polish applied to reveal lovely colours and detail. This is one of the finest half ammonites we have ever had on Fossils Direct and would make a dramatic statement in either the home or office space. Within the ammonite's open chambers there are hundreds of "Dog Tooth" calcite crystals which are highly aesthetic. When a powerful light source is present at the back of the ammonite, the shell lights up and glows an orange colour which is truly amazing. Freshwater as a locality to collect fossils, no longer exists so these beautiful ammonites are very rare to acquire thesedays, especially ones of this quality. A display stand also comes with this display ammonite which is approximately 167 million years old.
This Limestone nodule has been sliced in half to reveal a solid calcite ammonite which is totally complete with an immaculate centre. The matrix has a cut base for upright display. A beautiful piece which is approximately 190 million years old.
