Beautiful partial of Ammolite
All the colours of the rainbow
A highly desirable Ammolite Ammonite partial, from Bearpaw, Alberta, Canada, discovered in the summer of 2000.
The actual ammonite is Placenticeras meeki, dating from the Cretaceous, 71 million years old.
Ammolite is used in the production of jewellery, and large specimens of ammolite ammonites can bring in excess of £50,000.
The colours are produced by huge pressure at the time of fossillisation, and they are found in a very small area of Canada, the Bearpaw Formation.
The fantastic iridescent colours can be seen on this specimen.
Magnificent for display or could be utilised for the production of jewellery.
Not to be missed.
