£227.00The Mammites ammonite with ornamentation of stumpy tubercles to each side of the shell, the whole form is reasonably good, uncrushed, with some excellent ammonitic suture patterning. In places, the thick fossilised shell is still intact, this appears as darker patches, while the internal sutures under the shell appear in varying dark and lighter beige areas. Verso one small complete turritella gastropod lies within the matrix, just above the cut base, creating a unique and fascinating feature. A collector grade specimen having undergone cleaning and preparation in the UK. The base cut for display and the matrix (bedrock) ground, thus enhancing the overall appearance, lifting the fossilised shell and exhibiting it to a greater degree.
