Canadian Ammonite 12(1053)

Ammonite # 12(1053) Placenticeras costatum.  Measures approximately 35.8 cm. (14.09″) in diameter.  This ammonite displays vibrant colours on both sides, and ranges from deep reds, oranges, golds and greens, along with some of the rare blues in areas. The good shape shows off the intricate suture lines visible on parts of the ammonite. This ammonite also shows the bitemarks of a marine reptile, that are most likely from a mosasaur. This ammonite comes from the top of the Bearpaw formation at the Korite mine.  Only in one small area of North America does one find this brilliant gemstone. Over millions of years, the nacre of the ammonite’s shell has been transformed to take on this wild range of iridescent colouring.  It comes with a wood display stand and a certificate of authenticity. For international shipping, all customs paperwork is included. This specimen is registered with the Government of Canada and leaves the country with all the required permits and documentation.
