Harpoceras | Dactylioceras Ammonitida

Harpoceras Holzmaden Plate 4ft

£1,862.00 GBP

An fine display of Holzmaden fossil ammonoids measuring 4ft, this Poseidon shale encapsulates a variety of inclusions including the Harpoceras and Dactylioceras ammonites which have absorbed pyrite gold mineral deposits during their fossilisation process over 180,000,000 years.

Now beautifully curated for interiors around the world, the Harpoceras ammonite exhibits exquisitely detailed preservation with the conservation of the fossilised Jurassic shell, once the home of a marine mollusc, a cephalopod member related to modern-day cuttlefish and octopi of the Cephalopoda group. The Harpoceras ammonite being part of the subclass Ammonoidea and a family Hildoceratidae.

The Posidonia shales of the Jurassic formed part of the ancient Ocean referred to as the Tethys creating a wonderful contrast of gold pyrite against jet black Holzmaden shale to curate a dynamic interior-styled wall feature.

These Holzmaden shale deposits are world-famous and highly important due to the unique formation and discovery of skin covered fossil fauna, rarely seen in palaeontological records and with only a few locations with an environment which allows such fine preservation. The Posidonia Shale fossils can be found at the Museum Hauff, Holzmaden, as well as museums around the world
