Ammonite Fossil

A very rare multi Ammonite fossil, Aconeceras sp. and Deschaesites sp. from the early Cretaceous, Ulyanovsk, Volga Region, Russia. The piece measures 6.5″ x 3.5″ x 3″. Superb iridescence of original shell. As you are most likely aware the vast majority of Ammonites from this region are now being reset on “aesthetic” artificial/composite matrices. This piece is from an old collection and predates this rather poor practice!
