Canadian Ammonite 324(1241)

Ammonite #324(1241) Placenticeras meeki. Measures approximately 49.4 cm. (19.46″) in diameter and weighs 17.7 kg (39.02 lbs). This ammonite displays excellent shape and it has areas of amazing colours on both sides. Including burgundies, reds, oranges, golds, greens and some of the rare blues and purples, even a little hints of pinks. There are also some of the intricate suture lines peeking through in areas on either side, along with showing some ribbing from the growth process that in turn accentuates the colours. In addition to these, the ammonite shows hints of bryozoans, an aquatic invertebrate that would attach to the ammonites, visible in areas with the naked eye or more easily with a magnifying glass. 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.
