This is a truly majestic, complete ammonite which displays a myriad of tantalizing color tones, in greater breadth and depth than any hand specimen. This ammonite was left in the iron stone concretion which it was found in and was only prepared on one side. It displays a flaming rainbow of coloration spiraling in a mesmerizing, natural pattern. These rich splashes of color begin as green and yellow tones on the outer edge of the ammonite, reaching inwards with strands of bold crimson towards a deep red core. This ammonite was found in the upper layers of the Bearpaw formation, and was collected by hand off the high banks of the St. Mary's River in southern Alberta, close to the KORITE mine. 

Only in one small area of North America does one find this brilliant gemstone. Over millions of years, the nacre of the ammonite's shell has been transformed to take on this wild range of iridescent colouring.  It comes with a wood stand and a certificate of authenticity. For international shipping, all customs paperwork is included. This specimen is registered with the Government of Canada and leaves the country with all the required permits and documentation.

Placenticeras meeki. This ammonite measures 29.5cm x 26.5cm x 10cm in its natural iron stone concretion. Weight: 11.7kg.
