Ammonite #23(1056) Placenticeras costatum. Ammonite measurement approx. 17.5 cm (6.89”) in diameter in a rock matrix measuring approx. 43.5 X 37 cm. (17.13” X 14.57”). This ammonite has excellent colours including very beautiful burgundies, reds, oranges, golds and greens. This ammonite has amazing shape and beautifully distinct features, such as well pronounced tubercles along the inner spiral. This ammonite comes from the bottom of the Bearpaw formation in 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.

This specimen is registered with the Government of Canada and leaves the country with all the required permits and documentation.
