Ammonite Phylloceras 8.9cm
Phylloceras Ammonite, polished fossil for sale from Madagascar. This large, striking ammonite measures 8.9cm at its widest point and has been carefully hand-polished to reveal its colourful 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.
Our Phylloceras ammonites have also been expertly prepared to preserve their intricate mouths.
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 the jungles of Mahajanga on the North West Coast of Madagascar, and dating from the Cretaceous Period at 120 million years old, this piece is a stunning historical item. The piece comes complete with display stand.
