Cerithium gigantum 2

Product description

This is a perfect example of the large Gastropod, Cerithium gigantum, from the inferior oolitic limestone of Normandy, France. It dates from the Eocene, and is 50 million years old.


These are becoming much more difficult to find. We purchased several such fossils some years ago, but have found it increasingly difficult to find more examples of this quality.
Cerithium was a Gastropod of the phylum mollusc, and had along, whorled, turreted shell. It had a horny operculum (flap) to close the opening of its shell.
 

Normally commanding prices of £500 to £700, this superb Cerithium is a great investment piece 
 It can be stand mounted if desired.
