A lovely example which has been ground gem smooth and a high polish applied to reveal beautiful colours and detail throughout. The ammonite lies in a limestone nodule with a cut base for ease of display. Approximately 190 million years old.
This beautiful and rustic partial ammonite has been sliced then ground gem smooth and finally, a high polish applied. Within each hollow chamber has grown hundreds of nail head calcite crystals which is a lovely feature. The ammonite has been preserved in solid calcite and would make a good conversation piece for either the home or office space. Approximately 176 million years old.
From the late John Page collection comes this rare, multi-starfish piece from the world famous starfish beds of Girvan. The starfish lie on a bed of broken bivalves which only adds interest to the deposition of the specimen. These are now becoming increasingly scarse to obtain especially from this classic site.
