Hoplitoidea Wohltmanni

Hoplitoides Wohltmanni Ammonite 202mm

£342.00 GBP

A rare exotic fossil Hoplitoides ammonite measuring 202mm, a fun piece for its discuss shape and buoyant center with a narrow keel edge and small umbilicus or usually referred to as the central inner segment. This acid cleaned Ammonite has a wonderful matte finish which opens the internal structure, now clearly visible and reveals a subtle soft colour palette with the chambers separated by quartz chalcedony vein lines.

Now the fossilised shell has undergone an exacting conservation treatment, using an acid preparation and finally a smooth polishing of the fossil phragmacone. This has revealed the fascinating mineralisation and colouration within, allowing the ammonoid a naturally organic appearance which is equally decorative and scientifically allowing a good study element.

Each chamber is picked out by the minerals that have been absorbed into the body cavities of the extinct marine mollusc, this mineralisation over millions of years is caused by a process of per-mineralisation. Watercourses through the tissues of the fossil and by a transformation deposits mineral elements, mostly quartz-based chalcedony in this instance, these minerals grow and replace the tissues within the shell eventually creating a solid limestone infill.
