Placenticeras meeki
Pierre Shale, South Dakota
Long a key piece in a major private collection, this beautiful Placenticeras meeki is from the famed Pierre Shale Formation of South Dakota. The suture patterns are well defined and polished from one side while the back is still imbedded in the original stone. In addition to its natural beauty, this magnificent fossil tells the story of a sea creature alive during the height of the dinosaurs’ reign.
Measuring 18½ x 15in
