Ammonite Douvilleiceras Large 9.4cm
Polished Douvilleiceras Ammonite, fossil for sale from Madagascar.
This large Polished Ammonite of the Douvilleiceras species measuring 9.4cm at its widest point has been carefully polished on top of its fossilised shell, which displays gorgeous chocolate brown, caramel-coloured, and cream suture patterns.
This Douvilleiceras Ammonite displays a glistening ribbed shell which is wonderfully tactile to hold, and a stunning exposed mouth which has been prepared by hand along its suture lines.
Sourced from the jungles of Mahajanga in Madagascar, this fossil is 120 million years old and dates back to the Cretaceous Period. The original shell of the Ammonite was replaced over a very long period of fossilisation, wherein water dissolved the original hard parts of the ammonite shell and replaced it with mineral matter: most commonly, Calcite minerals.
Douvilleiceras is a species of Ammonite (an extinct marine mollusc) that can often be distinguished from other ammonites by its ribbed, highly textured shell.
This high-grade Ammonite fossil is perfect for a collector or as a unique gift. Piece comes complete with display stand.
