PYRATIZED AMMONITE PAIR - SPEETONICERAS SP.

THE SCIENCE

Ammonites are an extinct group of marine animals similar to the nautilus. Like the nautilus, ammonites had a soft body with tentacles that emerged from a hollow chambered shell utilized in the manner of a submarine's ballast tanks. Ammonites are often identified by their shell ornamentation and the structures of the wall that divide the shell's chambers.

THE STORY

This ammonite has been cut in half and is being sold as a pair. During the fossilization process, some of the organic matter was replaced with pyrite, producing an exceptionally beautiful specimen that is sure to adorn any serious fossil collector's cabinet of curiosities.
