This is an extremely detailed specimen of Nymboceras septum from the Cretaceous of Madagascar. This large, 3-dimensional ammonite has been removed from the surrounding matrix and highly polished on both sides. This lenticular ammonite has great shape and amazing detail. The intricate suture pattern is beautifully displayed - the light-colored suture lines contrast wonderfully with the deep brown shell of the cephalopod. The opening end of the ammonite has been prepared to show the actual chamber wall! The large size of the ammonite, the complex suture pattern, and the exquisite color make this a highly collectible ammonite specimen. (The white spot is a reflection in the photo and not on the specimen.)

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