Ammonite sculpturale sur matrice

Sculptural Ammonite on Matrix

Arietites bucklandi
Jurassic
Dijon, France

Ammonites are amongst the most instantly recognizable fossils and, having existed on Earth for almost 350 million years, serve as excellent index fossils for the dating of the geological formations in which they are found. This is an exemplary specimen of a classic French species, the Arietites, with a lovely Earthy brown coloration and strongly textural ribbing all the way to the center of its shell's natural whorl. It is virtually undistorted and sits upon its natural matte grey matrix base. Diameter of Ammonite 54 cm, on matrix measuring 65 x 57 cm
