Ammonite Aspidoceras Large 31.8cm
Large Aspidoceras Ammonite, polished fossil for sale from Madagascar. This stunning ammonite measures 31.8cm at its widest point and has been carefully hand-polished to reveal its rich brown calcite replacements and impressive fern-like suture patterns. These replacements occurred over a very long period of fossilisation, wherein water dissolved the original hard parts of the ammonite shell and replaced it with mineral matter.
This gorgeous, richly coloured fossil is of a very high grade and displays a smooth, glistening shell which makes it perfect for a collector or as a gift for a fossil lover. Sourced from Tulear in the south of Madagascar, and dating from the Jurassic Period at 163 million years old, this piece is a stunning historical item.
