This is a beautiful heteromorphic ammonite. It is a large Anclyoceras matheronianum from Saratov, Russia. This type of ammonite is loosely coiled, and this specimen displays this feature in textbook fashion. The ammonite has exquisite detail, with the ribbing pattern very easily seen and the tiny inner coils of the ammonite wonderfully intact. The colorful, nacreous shell still has the striking iridescence preserved. The ammonite is almost perfectly centered on the concretionary block of limestone. This is one of the most displayable types of ammonites we have had. It is a showcase fossil that could easily be a centerpiece of any fossil collection. (The ammonite is much more iridescent than the photos show.)

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
