SKU: 53(1055) Categories: , , , Tag:

Ammonite #53(1055) Placenticeras meeki.  Measures approximately 23.9 cm. (9.41″) in diameter.  This ammonite displays excellent shape and areas of very bright colours on both sides. That ranges from burgundies, reds, oranges, golds, greens and small areas of the rare blues. As well, there are some of the intricate suture lines that are visible on both sides of the ammonite’s surface. Alongside the suture lines there is also an area on the one side of the ammonite where bryozoans, an aquatic invertebrate that would attach to the ammonite, are visible 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.
